This is my first post here; I'm a long time user of Comodo CIS and I've never had a problem, until now and I need help as I cannot figure out what on earth has happened.The Problem(1)
When I try to view pages in Firefox Comodo CPU spikes and Firefox loads pages very slowly, and often not at all (connection timeout).(2)
When I shut down Firefox the windows closes, but the Firefox process in task manager is showing activity and it takes a very long time before it gets terminated, and at the same time Comodo is overloading the CPU and gets back to normal when the Firefox process is finally terminated.
The problem does not appear in any of the other browsers I have (Internet Explorer, Safari, Opera, Chrome).When did the problem appear?
- The last couple of days; and I recently updated Comodo (auto update).
- The problem also seems to occur especially when it comes to webpages where you need to login (e.g. Gmail login)
What I've tried to do?(1)
- Windows 7 64bit (SP 1)
- Firefox 6
- No other security software installed (except for Microsoft's default malware and firewall)
Firefox is added as a trusted/web application and allowed all in/out in Firewall.(2)
Emptied Firefox cache.(3)
Uninstalled Comodo: and yes Firefox then works as it should(4)
Installed only Firewall: Firefox slows down(5)
Uninstall Firewall, install Anti-Virus: Firefox still slows down(6)
My computer became FUBAR and I had to use a restore point (after the first Comodo uninstall). Computer was restored, with no Comodo installed, I installed Comodo full install, and everything worked. Firefox was slow but no more connection timeouts. Until I restarted the computer; now the problem occurs again.What am I supposed to do?
I’ve been using Comodo for a very long time and I don’t want to search for a new product, but I can’t even start to imagine what the problem is…
