I have COMODO Internet Security Premium installed in my computer.  Every time I run Google Chrome i get the below message.  Why Chrome needs to run CMD command every time I enter Chrome (seems that comodo contains it's execution maybe?)

I know I can hide or "dont isolate anymore" and that will do with the message.  But why chrome runs the cmd command?

Please look in the Comodo logs and find the exact command that is being blocked.  Let us know what it is.  Without that information we are speculating with no evidence.

Try disabling all of the extensions. Then enable them one by one, making a point to close and restart Chrome after doing so. Somehow, I wouldn't be shocked if it were IObit, but I have no way to say that for sure.

We need to see more of the log entry, in specific we need to see the command that is being executed.  Slide the log window over and see if that information is present.

It is interesting to note that the same Autoruns purge entries are here as in the previous thread cited by BillDL above.  This may or may not be a coincidence.

yes, I thought they were 2 different topics and wanted to award separate.  But noticed here it could be related.

At why is cmd.exe being launched everytime chrome is launched (see log here and image here - pay no attention to the "Unrecognized autorun entries" image)

In essence, why is the cmd.exe program is launched when chrome is launched?

What if iCloud Bookmarks is enabled and not IObit?
Commented:
Found the cause.  I uninstalled chrome and installed it again but this time unchecked the option to reporting and Comodo stopped.  Digged a little more and found an apps the would activate (C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\SwReporter).  So after uninstalling and reinstalling WITHOUT the reporting option, no more message.
