My Comodo firewall notified me with two popups that PSI 1.0 wanted
to modify the avast program folder (during the PSI install).
I allowed this - very reluctantly.
Why does PSI need to tamper with my antivirus?

Will PSI communicate with avast - or must I?

And should I be unhappy that , even after telling Comodo (firewall) to
permit, that avast allowed itself to be invaded (correct usage to say
pwned?) by PSI??!!

Thanks.

The Secunia PSI does not in any way modify existing programs on your
computer.

When installing the Secunia PSI it merely creates a folder, normally,
under your Program Files directory, where it places the Secunia PSI
program files in.

If your Comodo Firewall claims otherwise, then this is a false
positive.
