I keep seeing cmdagent.exe running in my processes list on Windows 7 and when it does it seems to hang things from happening on my computer. Like, if a program tries to connect to the internet I would usually get a popup from my firewall program notifying me of the program that's trying to connect to the internet and asking me if I want to allow it or block it, but when cmdagent.exe is running I don't get that anymore until I kill it's process. Does anyone know what this program is, and if it's a virus or MalwareMalwarebytes Anti-virus / Anti-malware??

Re: CMDAGENT.EXE - What is is?

Let me guess, are you using Comodo Firewall or Comodo Internet Security? I think it's part of the Comodo firewall, but I haven't investigated much into it yet. I get that too with cmdagent.exe showing in my process list and hanging things. When I kill the process I get the same behavior. There don't seem to be any ill effects after killing it, so I'm considering setting up a Windows Task to check for it running and kill it if it is so it all happens automatically, assuming it's not a crucial part of the firewall.



Shhh.. dont tell anyone, but we also have a private forum area with the really good stuff, see?
