The windows security center is useless (as stated many times before).  For one thing, it's already been proven the false alert that CFP is still on your computer.  For another, you don't need a service from M$ to tell you that your firewall or antivirus is running or not - you can see it yourself from the system tray.  Other times, because it's a Windows service, it usually loads before your security programs do, and some people think during that short boot-up sequence that their security programs aren't on 88).

How to uninstall Comodo Firewall?
« Reply #31 on: January 16, 2008, 06:16:18 PM »
Hello, the name is Jose. Sorry but I'm new to this=/
I've been reading a lots of comments about C-O-M-O-D-O firewall.
Which I heard so many great things about it. So, here recent I've downloaded the software.
Which I got an error. So, I tried to un-install the firewall and reinstall it, but I get a message says.
"Comodo firewall is already install in your system." Alas, I don't know what to do.
I would love to run this software on the PC but I need help with it.

I would surly appreciated if someone can help me.
Thank you=)

I am having the same problem as epikal. I just installed Comodo. And when i restarted it said the program could not start up . Because it was missing ...something. Cant remember exactly what. But now if i got to delete it . In Add/ Remove. It just says unable to delete , access denied.

And i am the admin on this computer. So i dont know why my access is denied.

Also when i try and uninstall it using the comodo uninstaller . It doesnt do anything.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.  And my Computer know how is not that great. Just an FYI.

okiegal ~

Here's a link to something a little easier to understand, I think.

http://forums.comodo.com/frequently_asked_questions_faq_for_comodo_firewall/manual_uninstall_of_cfp_2x-t5326.0.html;msg39350#msg39350

In this post by pandlouk, he has attached a batch file (labeled as "comodo Uninstall.zip"), it shows right below the red line towards the bottom of the post.  You download and unzip that file, run it, etc.  Just follow his instructions.  If you have any questions, please ask.  We're here to help.

PS:  I'd suggest disconnecting from the web (unhook your internet cable), and exit/shut down CFP, if it's running (just the icon in systray, if it's there).  Even better yet, reboot into SafeMode (commonly accessed by pressing F8 once per second once your BIOS splash screen shows when rebooting).  In SafeMode the firewall won't be running, so there shouldn't be any conflict issues.

Hello everyone
I've got quite the same problem as some of you. My comodo update didn't work so i uninstalled it hoping to install it again. I did that through Control Panel and now i can't see it among the other programs in "Programs and Features" (the Vista's version of add/remove programs). I still had the comodo firewall running when i go to your forum and followed the steps written above. I deleted all the data in program files, (i think i) deleted all the registry related files, BUT when i try to run the installation file it says that Comodo firewall is already installed and asks me whether i'd like it to be uninstalled. When i click Yes nothing happens. I've tried that ZIP file from the other topic and it doesn't work... (maybe because i don't have the files anymore).
Btw, i've got Vista.
What shall i do? Please help me, because i've become really fond of Comodo - it's such a nice firewall.
Thank you very much for your help
Kind regards,
Luka

Hello bustermattie

Welcome to Comodo

1. stop the WMI Service
2. delete the "repository" folder in C:\windows\system32\wbem
3. start the WMI Service. Starting the service rebuilds the deleted folder and the database.

John

Thanks for JJasper, Little mac (February 05 2007) and Soyabeaner (February 05 2007) recomendations. It really worked. Comodo firewall has been completely uninstalled from my pc and Windows Security Center has no references about Comodo Firewall now. I uninstalled it when i was trying to find for something that was not working well at my computer. Surely after I finish doing this, I will install Comodo Firewall again. As others say: it is a nice firewall.
As a little contribution to the forum, here is what I found about deleting, renaming or rebuilding the repository. You can seek for aditional information at: http://www.microsoft.com/technet/community/en-us/management/wmi_faq.mspx
Thanks to all of you.

I wanted to start a new topic, but I cannot find how to start a new topic.  I have searched using the search block no help. I have the problem that I cannot remove COMODO. I have uninstalled it via the control Panel  uninstall progams, it is still there. I went into the regedit and removed all references to COMODO but I cannot remove parts of  the program in the program. Will not let remove some of  the items.  It has stopped me from updating my antivirus program, even in safe mode I cannot remove it.  I know longer want any part of comodo. Just want it permanently removed from my computer. Appreciate any help I can get.  I will try it out on my old test computer and see if I can learn to make it work as it should. Do not have time on this computer to fool around with a program that I do not understand. Thanks

Hi sluggo123.  Welcome to the forum.

You mean those reg keys that have the insufficient privileges alerts when you try to manually delete them?  If so, right click on each key and give yourself Full Control under the Permissions.

I had COMODO PRO PLUS (free edition).I removed it from Add/remove files.

I have major computer problems.  I have AT&T Yahoo, Windows XP.  I am able to log on,surf the web; however, I cannot access my e-mail,IM, my AT&T account info, use Restore, perform a search from the Start Button, access Security Center in my Control Panel.  After purusing the net, thought Comodo was blocking some web sites, so I removed it from my Control Panel (didn't see anywhere where I could disable it).  In Program Files Comodo folder is still there, there is nothing to click on to uninstall/reinstall or remove.  AT&T feels that part of Commodo is still on my computer and is causing my problems. 
Any suggestions. 

I saw this but don't understand what to do with it.

- CD to personal firewall installation folder
2- type "fwconfig -uninstall" from the command line
3- restart Windows
4- Manually delete all files

Appreciate your help.

I'll check back for info, as I cannot e-mail

I have followed all the advice on how to uninstall comodo, i think that this is just a rubbish* way of getting people to register with them. All programs come with a uninstaller.exe file, but not with this crap program, you have to register to get it!! Then you will be bombarded by spam from them etc etc!!
I will never use this rubbish*e again, it is also very intrusive, i had 50 pop ups before i even got on the internet!!
It also uses alot of resource power

People dump this program and use some of the other free ones out there like:
AVG
Sunbelt firewall
Webroot Firewall
Zone Alarm
Avast

Same here mate. I`ve done everything on this topic to uninstall this rubbish, but it just won`t let me. I honestly wish I`d never installed the rubbish in the first place. Even a well known PC shop was unable to remove it. Is there anyone on COMODO who actually knows anything about how to remove this rubbish.

This Is For Comodo Firewall v3 If Regular Uninstaller Does Not Work
First Download Full Removal Batch File ( http://forums.comodo.com/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=17220.0;attach=17692 )
Boot In Safe Mode (Restart > Tap F8 After BIOS Boot Screen)
Log Into Administrator /  (Account with Admin Powers)
Run The Batch File
Restart

If Any Trouble Please Report Back
