It sounds like a bad install to me.  Otherwise you should be getting the downloads.  I found that it is very particular about the install and I could not even put it in a location other than a default.  It is even more fussy about the uninstall.  If you have to uninstall it for any reason be sure to make sure that there is nothing left in the registry for CFP.  The One person only MSN  problem seems strange to me.  Maybe one of the moderators will have an answer for you.

I stopped comodo to exclude which prog causes the trouble. Seems just the same, so it might be AVG-antivirus... I keep going on to find out, but every hint is welcome.

cc-tje, I think you'll receive more exposure if you opened a new topic at the CFP Help board with this AVG + CFP = MSN issue.

Problem solved! And it wasn't me or my computer, even not Comodo or AVG, only my correspondent didn't follow the updates from Windows and used an older version messenger. According to him I was the only one with this issue, but since he updated everything is back to normal.
Thanks anyway, I'll keep coming here!!!

Thanks for the update.  I should've known it was a version conflict (haven't had that in a long time).

Glad to see your problem is solved and that Cfp is not the problem

I have been using Comodo for quite some time now, ever since I change my computer and couldn't get a Free vesion of Sygate. I have been in the main quite pleased with the performance, however when I used Sygate I always got a 100% stealth with the Gibson Port test. Now with Comodo there is 1 Stealth, all others are Closed except 2 Ports are open, how can I achieve Stealth with Comodo.
Version is 2.4.18.184
Thanks
Labelman

lots of good info.

  When I install a program do I need to turn off CPF if I do then when uninstalling a program conversely do I need to turn CPF off.

Hi stillen.

Unless you're installing another security program like HIPS or anti-virus that you trust in order to avoid potential conflicts, it is recommend that you leave CFP enabled because what if that program happened to perform suspicious activity like connect out and phone home?  This applies to also during the uninstallation process if you can believe it! As I've personally seen them phone home as well :o

  • The Colonel told me to.
I've never turned off the firewall, and do not believe I have had any conflicts that way.  I do, however, recommend turning off active AV (or at least the On-Access part of it), any active HIPS, or other active protection programs, as they will frequently cause conflicts while installing and uninstalling.  It seems that even if they just cause a slight delay in the process due to you responding to a popup alert, that may be enough to cause trouble (which the result is not known/realized until later, when stuff just doesn't work right...).

I have a problem where Comodo asks me if I should allow WinWord to access the Internet, and it tells me that this or that trojan or whatever might result. If I click Deny, (and the security bar is mostly red) then I can't access the internet with gmail.

I have written Comodo and they write back and ask for a print of a screen and exactly what it says. I do that, then I don't hear back from them. Meanwhile I have to restart my computer, lose email  messages that I write, because I may be pasting something from Word and/or attaching a .doc file, and then I am disconnected, although I am on wireless, from the Internet.

Parent applications can be gnotify, gmail or IE explore. If I always click allow am I inviting worms into my computer?
