Here also.
I'm using XP home SP2 with all updates and avast! home.
Many people with the probelm use avast! or am I wrong ?
Noticed also that a reboot is not necessary, stooping and restarting manually CPF and the problem is gone (until the next time  ;)  )

i'm also running avast home edition.  one thing i notice is that when CPF fails to initialize, it takes a LONG time for avast to initialize, as well as weather watcher.  but it didn't happen when i turned on my computer this morning, and everything initialized properly.

i hope this glitch can be fixed soon.  CPF is the best free firewall i have ever used, and i have no desire to switch.  hopefully the tech support people read this forum, and are working on a solution.

i wonder if the problem is with avast?  or CPF?  i remember for a long time the reason i didn't use earlier versions of CPF was the incompatibility with AVG Email Scanner.  now a solution has been found for that problem, but in the meantime i switched from AVG to Avast.  now i have no problem with the avast email scanner, but we see the slow (or no) initialization of CPF.  whether this is because of a conflict with avast i'm not sure, but i hope a solution can be found.  i wonder if running avast home or pro is a common denominator with people who are experiencing this problem?

It could be.. that's why I ask the XP question earlier. At the time I was wondering if it could be related to the known XP systray problems.

what are those problems?  and can this problem with CPF eventually be corrected?  i didn't know there were systray specific problems in xp.

At this point I couldn't even say if it was an CPF, OS or 3rd-party software related issue. That would probably require Egemen's input.

XP systray problems Unfortunately, there have been quite a few (do a search yourself).

I have Windows XP Sp2, Avast Home, and CPF and have not seen this problem at all.

Knock on wood that I never do.

lucky you! 

still, no matter how annoying this little bug is, it sure isn't enough to make me switch!  "wonderful zone alarm" screwed up my system so badly i had to reformat!!  at least the bugs are corrected in new versions of CPF.  at least i hope so....

I doubt it.

As I stated in my first post COMODO firewall runs Ok on my XP Home but not on XP Pro machine.

Both computers have exactly the same security software on them, both patched up to date.

It's a puzzler.  ???

eventually i hope a solution will present itself.  the firewall has been pretty good about initializing today, so it must be one of those annoying intermittent bugs that comes and goes.

Not sure this will help with the solution.
I run CF on 2 machines with almost identical settings except.
One uses a router and connects to cable.
One uses no router and connects to adsl.
On both machines set to start bare o/s which is xp pro sp2 patches up to date.
When I say bare o/s I have most of the services turned off that don't affect my use of the computer.
I could turn on all the things that I've turned off and see if something starting hangs up with cpf.
Example-windows time..etc,etc
All Iam saying is take a look at whats starting at boot up and maybe determine a common hang up program.
Oh ya both my machines boot up and run within 1 minute with all services and cpf initiallized.
Hope this is helpful.
