The network firewall is not functioning properly[CLOSED]
« on: October 24, 2007, 04:45:07 PM »
Hi!

I'm running Windows Vista Ultimate x64 verision.
But the summary says: "The network firewall is not functioning properly". What shold I do?

I hope an working RC will come out cause I wan't a firewall on my PC. none of the firewalls I've tested works with Vista64.

I'm including a diagnostic report...

  • Boot in safemode
  • Unistall V3
  • Look for comodo drivers in Device Manager (see quote below)
  • Uninstall any comodo driver in Device manger
  • Remove any comodo inf file from windows\inf hidden directory
  • Remove any comodo driver (cmdGuard.sys,inspect.sys,cmdhlp.sys) from system64(or 32)\drivers
  • Search for any comodo folder and delete it
  • Search for cmdGuard.sys,inspect.sys,cmdhlp.sys in the registry and delete them
  • Install V3 Again
  • Look for comodo drivers in Device Manager (see quote below)
  • Look for comodo drivers (cmdGuard.sys,inspect.sys,cmdhlp.sys) in system64(or 32)\drivers and  backup them
  • Reboot and cross fingers
BTW Look in you windows directory for System32 and System64 folders do you have them both?
If you don't have system32 folder try to create it

To work around this behavior and display devices when you click Show hidden devices:
1.   Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, and then click Command Prompt.
2.   At a command prompt, type the following command , and then press ENTER:
set devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices=1
3.   Type the following command a command prompt, and then press ENTER:
start devmgmt.msc
4.   Troubleshoot the devices and drivers in Device Manager.

NOTE: Click Show hidden devices on the View menu in Device Managers before you can see devices that are not connected to the computer.
5.   When you finish troubleshooting, close Device Manager.
6.   Type exit at the command prompt.

Note that when you close the command prompt window, Window clears the devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices=1 variable that you set in step 2 and prevents ghosted devices from being displayed when you click Show hidden devices.

If you are a developer or power user and you want to be able to view devices that are not connected to your computer, set this environment variable globally:
1.   Right-click My Computer.
2.   Click Properties.
3.   Click the Advanced tab.
4.   Click the Environment Variables tab.
5.   Set the variables in the System Variables box.

NOTE: Use this method only for troubleshooting or development purposes, or to prevent users from accidentally uninstalling a required device that is not connected to the computer (such as a USB device or docking station that is not connected to a laptop computer).
