Thanks for the very comprehensive list of fixed issues. It is very helpful to have such a complete list.

Please try to convince Egemen to do likewise :) :)

It is also extrememly helpful to list the known issues, as you have done.

Is a maintenance release planned for any of the known issues, or do they perhaps only affect a very small proportion of machines? If the latter may be worth making this clear.

Best wishes

P.S. 1) Unfortunately nothing changed with this issue.

Please use regedit (run it from WinPE's command prompt) and let me know what values have the "EditionID" and "InstallationType" registry entries in "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion"

Thanks

(BIG) Wish:

I don't wish to automatically logon to Cloud every system startup thus I unticked 'Sign in automatically'.
But that results in the 'Comodo Cloud' window showing up in my face every logon, can this start minimized or can an option be added to override this behavior to 'always minimize at start'?

Worse, it pop's back up to center-screen every 2 minutes now  :o ???

For a work around intill it is fixed why not just make it so you just start it up when you want to use it like by using a startup manager.   unless you already do that  :)
