Installed and running without a hitch .
When I say "Check for Updates" I get an error. Still on 2064.
So the voice recognition in this beta is still crap?
They really should focus on other stuff. j/k...
I'm impressed by the speed of the new beta really, and I see that the automation of the different modules has been vastly improved in the default settings - big plus!
To Hungry: You running with AV enabled or disabled in this beta?
I agree, CIS is looking really nice. I'm looking forward to seeing how it develops over these next few betas (assuming there'll be more of course). For a free product it really is a great piece of kit.
My fave Black skin also returns on latest beta, big up Comodo
No AV. Only the cloud AV packaged into Defense+.
Same here...very smooth and light!
Please do me a favor and check peak working set, and virtual memory usage. I am getting about 900meg, and over 1GB for vm, which seems really high. At least the highest I have seen for an internet suite.
PWS = 104mb cmdagent, 33,5mb cfp
Virtual size: 288mb cmd, 244mb cfp
I don't have installed the AV but my Vitual memory for cpf is 190 and for cmdagent 203
The working set is 3 and 7
Private 20 and 39
Have you try updating to the latest av database? they have just transformed it, maybe you are in the middle of this transformation.
Yikes! A new update-
What's new in 5.8.202876.2065?
FIXED! CIS doesn't close handles as expected which could cause stability and performance issues.
This will install without the program closing or any reboots.
I don't think I can update via the program. Gonna try to download from the site.
Just ran across some malware earlier today that at the time was detected by nothing. One of the changes that it made was specifically targeting Firefox (I tested it on versions 5 and 6- neither was set as default browser). It would change the Home page, and the change could only be reversed by uninstalling Firefox and deleting customizations.
D+ would prevent this change only at the Untrusted or Blocked levels.
All this kind of problems with the sandbox will be gone in the v6, when the sandbox will be based on virtualization.
It would be nice if Scotty would also detect changes to the Firefox home page as it does for IE.
You can try this https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/browserprotect/
Thats why I have mine set for untrusted. That and I have firefox running in a sandboxie.
The addon BrowserProtect did indeed detect the home page change but could not block it.
same for me.
I think that sandboxie can't do anything against a malware that can change settings if the program (firefox) is not active.
I have my CIS sandbox in restricted, I can`t wait to the new CIS sandbox xD
I have sandboxie set up as dropmyrights and restricted internet/programs. Send me a sample and lets see if it stops anything from running.
If firefox is closed as I said before and the malware is executed how is sandboxie going to protect the settings? or I'm missing something?
I don't think you are missing anything. The only way to prevent the change would be the obvious one, and that is to Sandbox the malware exe at a high level.
Even if Firefox was running in the sandbox, Sandboxie wouldn't prevent it. It would only stop the malware if the malware was sandboxed.... I think.
Anyways I have autosandboxing off. If I think something might be malicious I manually sandbox it as Limited since that includes virtualization and some restrictions.
