Uninstall
« on: December 15, 2012, 04:05:02 AM »
Real good applications are uninstalling without any difficulties.
So Comodo Internet Security should do.
But no.
Once installed, there's a lot of crap i've never ask for and i got to uninstalll.
Unfornuatialy, they won't uninstall complete, so there another bunch of crap which I further call SPYWARE on my PC.

Thank you very much, now ich can reinstall my machine, because i want it clean.

And in future, with this, you have successfully gained the medal of crapware for me.

Maybe you should get back to you your root, instead spying other peoples PCs and building more commerciell crap, which no ones need.

So long and thanks for all the fish...

Hi xcn,
Some of the issues that you had were avoidable, the other unwanted Comodo software that installed was optional during install.

The uninstalling issues that you had in general could have been caused by numerous things from something corrupt with the installation to something corrupt or conflicting within the system (Very likely going by your other post).

We are all here to help if you give us a chance.
Thanks.

I downloaded the Comodo Firewall software.  When I began the installation process, I was required to read the terms of service and agree to it all.  After I read it, I decided I did not want to agree to all of that, so I cancelled the installation.

Now, I find that Comodo is blocking my access to some websites!  What gives?  I refused to install your software on my computer, but now I find it is there anyway and is controlling what I may or may not do!  That is outrageous, for obvious reasons.

I want to know how to stop this; I don't want Comodo on my computer and I certainly don't want it telling me what I can or cannot do.

Please explain:

--Why there is any Comodo software on my computer at all, after I stopped the installation process, because I refused to agree to the terms of service, and

--how I can get rid of Comodo ENTIRELY from my computer.

My OS is Windows 7 home premium, 64 bit.

Thank you,

If you canceled the installation, there shouldn't be any Comodo software on your system.

You can try using this un-installation tool. Uninstaller Tool for Comodo Products

It is Hard to find those because customize installer is in small letters and is often missed by the average user.

This sounds like the DNS settings got changed to Comodo's  Secure DNS servers.  You can change this by going to Control Panel > Network and Sharing Center > Change Adapter settings > right click on your active connector and selecting Properties.  Click on (select) Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) and then click on Properties (lower right hand part of the Adapter Connection Properties screen).  If the DNS setting is NOT on the "Obtain DNS server address automatically" then select that and click OK all the way out of the settings screens.  This will change your systems DNS servers back to default (usually what your ISP router is set to).

There is no software on your system (IF the DNS is changed); the blocking is coming from Comodo's Secure DNS servers which filter content BEFORE it is ever sent over the internet to your system.

Yes I think also that he was not vigilant during installation and let Comodo change the DNS servers.
A note to anyone from Comodo: the idea of using DNS servers like yours is GOOD, EXCEPT when you block rather than warn with some websites, people should have the right to choose whether they want to take the risk to enter a certain website or not, regardless of dangers. I also know you were years ahead of OPENDNS with this idea... but, the difference between democracy and authoritarianism is in letting people make choices after informing them.

I believe this is supposed to be possible at this time. Do you not see a disregard option for blocked sites? Sorry, I'm not using it myself, but had thought this had now been added.

Thanks.
