Windows 7: Comodo Leak Test: What's your score?

Is there any way to get the CLT to run without asking for a UAC prompt?

I replaced Windows UAC with the Comodo Proactive Defense+ Host Intrusion Prevention System years ago, but someone else may know.

I am using Comodo v5.3 with the Sandbox disabled because I prefer to make computer security decisions myself using Defense+ HIPS besides that the Leak Tests were not designed to be used with a sandbox. Other than that I run Defense + in Safe Mode using the settings shown in the attachments.

Thanks, but I already had those settings, and have done all the steps on Comodo forum, but still the score remains unchanged. I'm baffled, so am not going to drive myself crazy with it. A Guy

A Guy- When I was running v5.0 and v5.1 of the Comodo Firewall I couldn't get a perfect CLT score either and I was just as baffled as you now are, but just after I installed v5.3 I got the 340/340 using the same settings that I had been.

One solid improvement I did make was to delete all of the entries in the 10,000+ entry Trusted Vendors List in the vendor database files under Comodo> CIS> database to prevent any erroneously signed Malware from getting through. The TVL is only a convenience saving feature anyway and besides I prefer to make these decisions myself using Defense+ HIPS. I was expecting that there might be a lot more pop-ups as a result, but so far I haven't noticed a difference.

One thing I found with Win 7 was that Comodo did not shut down Windows Firewall and I had to go into services and manually disable it.

After reading this thread, I really don't understand all this effort to claim a perfect score with CLT ... First, this test was developed in 2008, and probably doesn't test for all of the current threats that are present today .. Second, while comodo is a good security suite, it is only ONE layer of a proper multi-layered approach to computer security. The other two layers being a real time anti-malware program and system imaging... After using this approach for 20+ years of my 35+ years of computer use, I have never been infected with a virus ... not once. That being said, I find tests like CLT an exercise in futility .. at least for me...

For me it's not so much about getting a perfect score, as wanting my firewall set up right. If Comodo Firewall can't pass the Comodo leak test, then I assume I have vulnerabilities. It's not about detecting new threats, it's about the correct settings for the common vulnerabilities. A Guy

AFAIK the Comodo Leak Tests have never claimed to be the ultimate Firewall test suite, but rather a set of 34 tests that the end user can apply to help them evaluate Firewall security. The Matousec Proactive Security Challenge consists of 148 tests and is much more complete than CLT.

You are right about the importance of layered computer security. I have chosen to add yet another layer of computer security by running my browser in the virtual space of Sandboxie. Although it does not enhance Firewall security it does prevent Malware from associating itself with the computer's file system and registry.

Win 7 firewall fails leak test
