I’m a big fan of Little Snitch on OS X and decided to install Comodo Firewall as an alternative to Little Snitch on Windows. The software isn’t bad, but after installing it Google Chrome started crashing as soon as it would launch. After a quick search I found this threadÂ on the Comodo support forum which recommends adding chrome.exe to HIPS Detect Shellcode injections Exclusion list.
Here are the steps to add chrome.exe to the exclusion list:
Right-click on Comodo Firewall Taskbar icon and select HIPS -> Settings
Under Settings Click the Exclusions option
Click on Add and select Files
Look for chrome.exe under C:\Program Files\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe and click open
Once chrome.exe has been added to the exclusion list click OK and you should be able to run Google Chrome without having it crash on you.
