As far as I know Avast and MSE each offer excellent protection in their own right is there a reason that you need both?

Did this happen even in Comodo Game Mode? There are some Comodo Forum Members who are avid gamers and they may be able to show how to prevent this from happening.

never knew comodo antivirus have a game mode. People said that Avast and MSE works very well together.
Avast has a gaming mode to, but as i am not a gamer i don't know if it is any good or not :)

Yes, Comodo Internet Security 5.0 finally has a Game Mode which is very easily accessible on the fly through the Comodo System Tray Icon with no GUI access required because Gamers like you have been demanding it from the developers for several years and we all know how insistent Gamers can be in that for most of them not having a Game Mode is a deal breaker no matter how good the rest of the Security Suite is.

Please check out this thread about the Comodo 5.0 Game Whitelist perhaps you have some of your own suggestions.
