I figured out the problem and a solution / workaround. I am posting this because I thought it might be useful to the Comodo developers being a software developer myself.

The problem is because Comodo is running under the local system account, and when there is no proxy server specified in the settings the values from the below key are used.

HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-18\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Connections\DefaultConnectionSettings

the value in this key was copied from when I was using the previous proxy server. The work around was to export the same key from HKEY_CURRENT_USER and import it into HKEY_USERS\S-1-15-18

A suggestion to the developers have an option in the connection settings page that forces no proxy server  "No Proxy Server"
