I get BSOD Not_Less_or_Equal using Comodo Firewall 2.4 and it is caused by the XP screensaver.
If I disable the screensaver, I don't get BSOD.
Please let me know if this fixes anyones BSOD?

I'm new here so this is my second try.

I think Sparky has a good point. I get the same BSOD after my computer has been idle for a couple of hours.

Analysis of minidump with Debug identifies cmdmon.sys as the cause for the crash. My computer has been on for hours now with Windows Screen Saver turned off.

Any ideas about what's happening?

Update: I jumped in too soon. Computer still crashes with Win Screen Saver off. Will post again if I discover the conflict or cause.

Dell 8300
Pent 4, 2.6
1GB DDR 400
Win XP Pro, SP2
Intel Pro/100

I recently tried CFP_Setup_English_German_2.4.18.184.exe in search for a new Firewall. I have a free license to the Symantec Client Security Corporate (AV and PFW) through my company, but i dont really like the firewall. So I tried Comodo, but i get Reboots/BSOD about every 24h with cdmon.sys being the culprit. I cant provide minidump because my swapfile is on a µSSD and there is not enough room on the Sysdrive for the required swapfilesize of memory+1MB.
I also use µtorrent, though it doesn't run all the time.
I also have a dedicated Router/Firewall (IPCop Linux) on a separate PC.
My NIC is intel PRO/100 PCI, and there is a Realcrap 8139 Onboard NIC which is disabled in Windows.
Sysspecs: Intel P4 Northwood 2,6GHz, 4GB, EIDE HDDs, USB2 8GB µSSD as Swapdisk and Photoshop Scratchdisk. WinXP SP2 with all relevant updates.
System runs without reboots for MONTHS unless i install CFP_Setup_English_German_2.4.18.184.exe which makes it crash every day. Pls fix this, because Comodo is really good, apart from this show stopper.

Does anyone even check the minidumps still? The later ones all have 0 downloads. If it is REALLY of interest i can take out 3GB and move swap to C:\ for a day.

I have been having the same problem too. It has been driving me crazy coz recently I had re replace a pair of faulty RAM to get my PC stable. So when I started hitting BSOD randomly even after replacing, imagine my despair  (:AGY).

I noticed that the BSOD was linked to

1. laptop sitting idle for more than 30mins and accesing local network

2. printing to my network printers (connected to another LAN PC)

3. Norton Ghost (version 12) network backup.

The problem was not there at the beginning, which was about 3-4 months back when I started using Comodo. It started at some point when updates were installed to the OS and WMP11 and IE7 was installed.

I am running WinXP SP2 Pro with complete current update as on Spetember 06, 2007. All drivers are current. Details of the system were collected (complete HW and SW inventory) usng HP Instant support Prof. ed. and attached.

I would be happy to provide more info.

Here is the debug info obtained using WinDbg (version

comodo firewall causes BSOD
« Reply #78 on: September 08, 2007, 09:31:02 AM »
Hi all,

I've been using comodo for about a year without any problems, it's a great piece of software. BUT... Now I have changed my pc hardware (format + reinstall of windows xp) and I had anything but trouble. I found that comodo was behind that :-(

Cause: comodo causes BSOD with some message about inspect.sys and DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL. It shows up only when many outgoing connections are made (about 400 or so - I've tested with utorrent and proxyhunter, I have patched tcpip.sys to allow unlimited connections)

My MB is Asus P5B-VM, intel g965 chipset, realtek 8168/8111 gbit NIC

I found another thread here and found someone had similar issue with some other mainboard, but drivers update for the NIC had not solved the problem him, not for me. I have downloaded latest drivers for that NIC and it's still the same :-(

With the last mainboard I had comodo worked fine (original Intel with 915g chipset).

So I have uninstalled comodo and installed sunbelt/kerio, which works fine, at least I have 30 days... So this appears to be a problem of comodo :-(

Could you guys please look at that? I'd like to use comodo again, but it's unuseable for me now.

I've got an Intel Celeron 2.66 Mhz w/ 1Gig of memory, running XP w/ SP 2 and latest updates.

Receive very random BSOD. I have unistalled Commodo so can't give version but it should have been the latest.

This happened out of no ware too... It looks like it has something to do with inspect.sys and cmdmon.sys as well, as they are both counted in the dumb file as you will see

Comondo version :

PC :
Windows XP Pro
AMD AthlonXP 2700
ASUS A7N8X DELUXE - using onboard NVidia NIC with latest driver from 2004.
Here are the driver specs :
Driver pack 5.10
Ethernet driver 4.42 (WHQL)

1GB Dial channel RAM - Tested with Memtest 86

Forgot to note, I recently installed WMP11 and the Zune software, before they were installed I never got a single crash.

CPF ver.
OS:WinXP Professional SP2
Hardware: Intel C2D E2160, 1Gb Transcend DDR2 800MHz, TP Link WN551G Wireless Network Adapter

Received 2 BSOD in last 35 minutes. The BSOD message:


STOP: 0x000000D1 (0X0000001C, 0X00000002, 0X00000000, 0XAED8E33BB)

cmdmon.sys - ADDRESS AED8E3BB BASE AT AED88000, DATESTAMP 45bc9111

It seems that BSOD is somewhat related to using uTorrent, since when it is turned off, I don't have any problems.

BSOD's several times a day on my Dell laptop. When it became intolerable, I spent one week digging deep into the dump and error files using multiple tools including Debugging Tools For Windows. In the end, on a hunch, I uninstalled Comodo Personal Firewall and all BSOD's stopped. Don't believe I will ever install this app again.

The firewall worked great for a couple  of day's but after installing VMWare Workstations my laptop crashes on shutdown. Uninstalling VMWare was not the solution. So I took a look at the minidump and found that cmdmon.sys was the cause of the problem....
I've attached the minidump. Could somebody from Comodo please state if they are working on this promblem? If they're not, I'm gone.

I did find a work-around for my problem; I can logoff and than shutdown the machine without a BSOD.

I get these too. They happen during network operations, generally either when my PC that's responsible for backing up my Windows computers does its thing and touches this one over the network, or during log-on or log-off/closure of Remote Desktop Connection. It even happens though when I use TightVNC instead...and today I learned how to analyze a Bugcheck - and unfortunately it was Comodo. This probably has to do with the amount of memory my computer has (2 GB) - does anyone have not that much memory but still gets this? I have NEVER gotten it on my other computer that uses CPF, but only has 1 GB.

This is a shame since I'll have to uninstall Comodo Firewall for now (at least the problem wasn't BOClean...maybe I'll reinstall that...) Oh, I've attached zipped minidumps too. Not all were for Comodo, but most were, so other ones might be related since minidumps tell you what they think the cause is.

Good luck with fixing this!

Attached is a new minidump from a BSOD today.  Looks like I'm going to have to uninstall my firewall.  I just can't continue dealing with these.  (:AGY)
