Awesome worked like a charm. I take back some of my earlier comments, this really is a good firewall; I hope you fix the uninstall issues in the future though.

Do you have installed an IP blocker like peerguardian?
Have you checked your hosts file?

Hi, Pandlouk... after a lot of registry scans and restoring the system to the default settings, the problem is solved.

Thanks for the attention... Comodo is a great firewall, the best i have tried.

This is a problem of Xp and not of the Comodo Firewall.

For resolving it:

1. At the command line of windows XP  "Start" ->"Run" enter the command "CMD.EXE" and press Enter.
2. At the new window (Command Prompt window), type "NET STOP WINMGMT /Y" and press Enter. Then type "exit" end press Enter again.
3. Then go at the folder C:\windows\system32\wbem and delete the folder "Repository".
4. Reboot windows. The folder will be recreated by the Security Center and will display the correct information. ;) ;D

Is it necessary to restart winmgmt services or does this start automatically after reboot ?

I did as adviced here, but it didn't work.
I still can't reinstall Comodo.  I still get this message:

"you seem to be having Comodo firewall installed using older version of installer. Please go to 'start....'and un-install Comodo firewall."

Maybe i can tell you a little bit first why i want to reinstall?
Actually it was not my intention to uninstall Comodo. I had it on my laptop for a while (and still), and as i am quite satisfied by this firewall, i wanted to install it on my PC as well.
However, i guess i made a mistake by not installing it on the same partition as where my operating system is situated. The firewall didn't want to start up.

So, i decided to uninstall it and then reinstall it on the proper partition. Well, that didn't work, i got that message of 'older versin...and so on'.
Then i decided to remove any file that was still on my system, and to remove any registry key still present. So i did, however there is one reg key i can't seem to remove (why?):

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Enum\Root\LEGACY_CMDAGENT\0000
      (deviceDesc     REG_SZ    Comodo application Agent)

Maybe this is causing the trouble of reinstall?

I also tried as suggested above, but that din't work as well.

I don't know what i could do next. Could you help me out? Thanks.

Welcome to the forum, Dr.SideLove.  I don't know if the legacy registry is the problem, but to delete it just right-click on the key (not the value) and set the Permissions to Allow on Full Control.

Thanks, soyabeaner!

I was able to remove the regkey.
Though that didn't seem to be the solution, still can't reinstall.

Dr.SideLove, I just read through your first post to its entirety (sorry I didn't do that at first) and noticed that you quoted some steps that involved rebuilding Windows' repository directory.  That shouldn't be relevant to uninstalling CFP because it's more for refreshing the Windows Security Center's recognition of CFP's installed status.

Have you tried pandlouk's method on this first post by running the uninstaller?

Yes, i've tried it a second time. It worked, as easy as it is. Don't know what i did wrong the first time?
Anyhow, thanks! Comodo firewall is installed again!

When i type "NET STOP WINMGMT/Y" it says the system cannot find the path specified.

I also received an error in the command prompt, "The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect."

You can run Ewen's script that's free of charge :D

WMI = Windows Management Instrumentation = Basically the service that controls the Repository directory.  So yes to it.  You'll need to reboot after that to let the directory refresh.  Now the stubborn Security Center will report accurately.
