Antivirus Automatic Virus Signature Update not working [SOLVED]

Hello team.

Untill a couple of weeks ago, Comodo Premium 4.1.150349.920 was automatically updating the virus signature database, about 4 to 5 times a day.
But since then, I have noticed that updating just takes place if I go to one of the sequencies below:

  1. Summary tab, go to Virus Defense, and click on the latest virus signature date.
  2. More tab, then click on Check for Updates.
  3. Antivirus tab, and click on one of the following: Run a Scan, or Update Virus Database.

So, manual updating is up and running, in all instances.

Concerning automatic update, I have tried the following to no avail,

I have already ticked Automatically check for program updates in the Settings item, More tab.
Also, although this was not required in previous versions, I have included cfpupdat.exe as a trusted application (Allow all Incoming and Outgoing Requests), in the Network Security Policy.

Running Windows XP Pro SP3

go to antivirus at the top → virus scanner settings → rale time scanning tab → is automatically update virus database before scanning checked?

Thanks for the hint.
The item was not checked. I have marked it. Lets see what comes out.
