After installing the latest update, a message popped up and notified me that the update will take affect only after a reboot. I could choose if I want to reboot now or reboot later. So far so good.
But, when I chose later - it seems like the firewall froze and closed itself.
Afterwards, I had to reboot immidietly to prevent any security risks, and everything was fine.
If this is a bug report you’ll have to provide more detailed info!
ps. wecome to the forum
OK. Here’s the extra info:
- CPU - AMD, 64 bit
- Windows XP, SP 2
- AVG Anti-Virus Free
- Firewall security level - safe mode
Defence+ security level - disabled
- Using an admin account.
Let me know if you need any extra info.
I also wonder, did you upgrade from CFP 3 or the earlier CIS?
Not sure what’s the difference.
I was using Comodo Firewall 3.5.X
I see. I asked because there were two options: either you had CF 3.5.53896.424 (from the CIS installer) released 2008-10-23, or you had CFP 220.127.116.118 released 2008-05-30. In the first case, updating should be fine, in the second case, update wouldn’t work. If the first case apply to you, I guess you’ve encountered some kind of bug. If you can’t get it to work, I suppose a fresh installation of CF from CIS 3.5.54375.427 would be a solution.
I hope I didn’t confuse you.
Ok. Now I’m even more confused.
If CIS was released a week ago then I had the CFP version.
I searched for the installation file, and found it to be ‘CFP_Setup_18.104.22.1688_XP_Vista_x32.exe’.
So apparently, the update was not suppose to work.
But now, when I go to Misc —> About and look at the version number, it’s seems to be:
OK, sorry about that.
If you actually have 3.5.54375.427 now, you do have the latest, and it should also be labeled as “Comodo Firewall” instead of “Comodo Firewall Pro”.
Already re-installed :-/
