After a Comodo Firewall update a few days ago, every time I boot up or restart Windows 10, there is a popup window asking me to install something. Each time I uncheck the box and press skip, but it always comes back again. How can I make the window go away permanently?

The 2 options are either Skip or Accept.
I remember in the past updates, if I press accept, something would install that I didn’t want. So I always press skip. What will happen if I press Accept instead?
Hopefully mods, Staff or someone else can provide help here.
Otherwise I would say uninstall CIS using the standard Windows Remove Programs way and after that also use CIS CleanupTool (don’t forget to reboot twice) to remove any CIS leftovers.
Then install CIS again using either the online or offline installer.
It is really best to uninstall and then reinstall CIS as described above as it is not normal behavior that CIS shows the popup after every reboot.
Trying to fix the popup in another way may lead to other unwanted issues.
Best to start anew with a fresh and clean CIS install.
I know this thread is from last year—but I was having this very problem too, even though I’d updated to the latest CPF version (188.8.131.5212). So it can still happen. Uninstalling and reinstalling fixed it.
I thought it’d be a good idea to run the Comodo Uninstaller before reinstalling, as is recommended here. But I had a hard time finding it. Comodo has this “How to use” page, but frustratingly, it doesn’t include a link to actually download the program! Nor could I find a DL link anywhere else on Comodo’s site. I finally found it here on Softpedia.com (a very long-established, reputable software site):
