Title: avast free antivirus 7.0.1466 + comodo firewall exceptions
Post by: whizkidraj on October 10, 2012, 11:53:45 AM
Hello friends, I use avast free 7.0.1466 with comodo firewall 5.12 currently and wanted to know the exceptions I've to put in comodo firewall and in avast for both of them to have no conflicts. Now i know many people would suggests to carry on without any exceptions as it would work fine but then also u never know and also to optimize some performance of both of them i wanted to know all the exceptions i've to put in comodo firewall for avast and for comodo in avast. Every fine detail so that my knowledge would grow about all these. Thanks  :)  ::) ::) ::) ::)  ;D

Add the Comodo program file to avasts File System Shield exclusions and all avast processes in Comodo should be set to allow all.

thank you craigb sir for ur quick reply. I also want to add mbam pro with these 2 combo so would that make it more solid or i should be fine with these 2. And other than hitman pro and malwarebytes are their any genuine on demand scanners having well reputation as these 2. SAS sucks so other than SAS.
And yes forgot please give me a link to that mbam forum where they mentioned what to exclude from avast when running both avast and mbam pro realtime some updated 1 because that post have become older so any new post link.
Thanks  ::) ::) ::) ::) :)

Do the same with MBAM Pro by setting it's processes to allow all in comodo and add the comodo program file to the ignore list in MBAM

Avast - MBAM Pro exclusions are here in section K http://forums.malwarebytes.org/index.php?act=findpost&pid=417798

Forget Hitman and stick with Malwarebytes, it's the best :)

ok thanks criagb sir. But previously when i used this avast + mbam pro they had more exclusions to put in avast for mbam pro like mbamswissarmy.sys and all that files and now it tells only to exclude malwarebytes program files folder from avast and its update site from its web shield all trust processes. So has that changed now to not exclude mbamswissarmy.sys and some more files were there probably which i don't remember all of them currently.
And Comodo firewall once installed and configured doesn't i get updates from comodo regarding new threats to block like antivirus products get always. Only new versions update available it.

Yes MBAM updated the exclusions list so not so many needed any more.

Iv got no idea about the comodo new threat updates you have previously recieved, maybe they haven't released any ???
