I am using Comodo Firewall (CFW) v 220.127.116.118 on XP Pro SP3, 2.8ghz pentium with 2gb ram.
D+=Clean pc Mode. Firewall=Train with Safe Mode.
At system startup, CFP.exe consumes 80-100% CPU for about 30 sec to 60 sec then 30-60% for another 30-60 sec. This slows bootup significently! What does CFW have to do that uses so much of the CPU and highly SLOWs bootup? (it seems to get worse with every CFW update).
When I try to run portable apps from my USB jumpdrive, I get asked permission;I OK that;then cfp.exe uses 100% cpu for upwards of three minutes;I get another permission request;I ok again;then cfp.exe uses 100% cpu for upwards of three minutes AGAIN; THEN the program runs ok. What the heck is CFW doing for all that time that blocks my whole system??
Hey there Donald,
Sorry to hear about your jam-up, friend, and want to apologize in advance as I don’t necessarily have a solution for ya. However, I do have the same setup [v 18.104.22.1688 on XP Pro SP3, 2.8ghz with 2gb ram] and know that mine has run smoothly for some time now - so there’s surely a fix.
Surely a more knowledgeable person than myself will be along shortly…
Curious, are you logging any events - either FW or D+ - during these freezes? Perhaps there’s a clue to be found there?
Just about any of today’s av’s don’t use resources. I use NOD32 and its great. Also Avast is great. You do not need a real time spyware scanner since most av’s cover that. Running without an av is not a good idea. You have a good processor and plenty of ram so I dont understand why your worried about resources. Have you tried running D+ in training mode for a bit? I can surf,listen to MP3’s,watch Video’s and still have NOD32 and Comodo running under a Sandbox with no slow downs.
