Boot failure - CTM 2.8.155286.178 - Win7 x64

CTM 2.8.155286.178

after installing CTM 2.8.155286.178 and restarting, the CTM installer loaded before windows and succeeded apparently, but then windows seemed to hang so i CTRL+ALT+DEL to restart it, after which the loading was noticeably slower.

given the other issues i've read here, CTM does not look ready for wide spread public release.

event viewer logged the following error twice:

volmgr
event 46
Crash dump initialization failed!

I have a similar problem with CTM 2.8.155286.178 in Win7 x64. After I installed CTM, Windows booting has becoming a bit of a lottery. Sometimes it goes through, but sometimes gets hanged before the initial display, with the underscore DOS-like cursor parked at the top left corner or with a blank display. If so, the machine needs to be cold booted to respond again. Upon cold booting, and after the CTM display, Windows brings up the notice its previous booting had failed and gives the option of either "fixing" the system files or continue as normal. Except in one occasion I was able to continue  without trouble; in such occasion, selecting to continue rebooted the machine and brought back the same notice. Because I would only resort to MS fixes as the very, very last option (i.e., using the MS fix or setting myself alight bonzo style), I decided to loose whatever had added to the machine since the last CTM snapshot, and restored the system to that time to escape this MS-fix loop.

It is an inconvenience, of course, but unless it gets worse I am still willing to keep CTM.  There are no usual suspects as far as I can tell.  This is a very lean Win7 machine.  Any suggestions from Comodo on how to  avoid this nuisance?

I have noticed quite a few users ran into problems with CTM 2.8.155286.178 on Win7 x64 machines. So this version doesn't seem to work very smoothly on Win7, problems may arise during daily normal usage. Maybe some inherent bugs in 2.8 have resulted in these !

The best advice is to replace it with 2.9beta version which has come out since early September last year. (  can be found inside the " Beta Corner " ) As I've said in many posts that it worked peachy on many, many machines with WinXP or Win7, and had far fewer problems than it's predecessors.

Don't let the word " beta " scare you off ! In comparison to prior versions, it's more like a " Final Version "
Do give it a Try.. and come back afterwards to give your feed-back.

Really!

i heard  that comodo ctm is an easy utility for saving my computer ,

let me explain you before using ctm i hah a 16 year  experience of working with computer and i had not lost 1 bit of my data in these years ,

and your company software stole about 1 GIG of my email backups that i can't restore in anyway

i can explain you ,

one night before the power off i changed the  location of  some email  backups and after that ctm is not  working , windows  is  not  working and  goes to  blue  screen , i  started  my  computer with  hiren  boot  tool and hiren  diactivated the  comodo so  my  computer is  alive  but  the  data is  lost  and  i  have  not  any  access to  snapshots  via  windows  or  startup  console ,

so  if  you  think  this  product  is  for  protecting  your  data  you  are  in a  wrong  way .

2.9beta has very serious problem too. I have met some in my computer and my friends' in win7 64bit system. Computers can't be booted and must rebuild MBR or reformat disk . Now I don't use CTM again.

Ariafree. This is the third identical post.

We do not allow cross posting. Please stick to one post and consider making a topic rather cross posting. Then your message will be picked up better and will have a focused discussion. Now your posts will get lost because you are going off topic.
