"Comodo Firewall is being initialized . . ."
« on: September 13, 2006, 11:36:43 PM »
When I mouse over the CPF icon in the systray, the balloon says:
"Comodo Firewall is being initialized . . ."
But CPF everything appears to be working fine.  Is this something to be concerned about?  Thanks!

No, it's fine. The core components of CPF are initialized during the intial Windows boot sequence. You're still protected, but there is a performance hit until CPF has completely initialized.

hope this helps,

Hi folks.

This is something that I am getting too.

I have installed the firewall on my XP home laptop and my XP Pro desktop and I am seeing this on my XP Pro machine only.

It does not occur every boot but the majority of them. I have left the computer sitting and gone back an hour later and the message still appears if I mouse over the Icon in systray.

XP pro is all patched up to date. Running AVAST, Spybot (not tea-timer), Adaware free edition and Ewido free edition.

If I do a restart then everything is fine, it only appears to happen from a cold boot.

The fact that there is a performance hit until CPF has completely installed is a worry, as I mentioned I have gone back to my PC an hour later and it is still giving this message.

Other than that, cracking firewall.

When I said performance hit,  I meant for about a minute there is a noticeable lag, but on 6 installs here, the lag is not apparent for more than a minute, and these 6 boxes have a wide range of OS's, security software and patch levels.

Out of curiousity, does the desktop PC use ethernet or wireless for LAN connection?

Neither. Only networked when I require via a USB network cable.

I just upgraded to 2.3.5.62 today and I am getting the same problem. It doesn't always happen, but once I see the "Comodo Firewall is being initialized . . ." it is stuck there until the next reboot. This is on WinXP SP2, Dell Latitude D600 laptop, using built-in wireless card.

Are any of you getting any Medium - High alerts  in your Comodo logs matching the time when this occurs?

Not that I know of either. Never noted the time of these boots so can't tell from the log files.

Will pay attention to this on the next boot that this occurs, which will probably be today sometime.

Luxor

Ok checked and no Alerts when this occurs.
