Antivirus not active

I’m a long-time Comodo Firewall user and have recently installed the AV component and set it to stateful protection. Windows 7 still complains that I should look for AV programs. What gives?

Also, where in the GUI can I see the AV database version?

You need to reset the security center. It some times does not properly register.

Open a command prompt by clicking Start → Run. Type cmd and click OK.

In the command prompt window, type NET STOP WINMGMT /Y and press ENTER.


Type EXIT and press ENTER to close the window.

Restart the system. Windows should start normally, but you may be prompted to restart the system once more to complete the changes caused by resetting the core repository. You may also need to restart once more if Windows Security Center still does not detect your security product.[

Hi Jorgosch,
Within the GUI go to More, About.

Thank you EricJH and captainsticks for your answers. Refreshing the repository even made my Windows 7 consistently start up a lot faster.

You are welcome and good to hear that Eric’s solution solved your problem.
