Recently I thought of checking Windows8 and installed it on a new HDD in my system, AMD Phenom II x4 B955, ASUS M4A88TD-V-EVO, 8 GB DDR3 RAM, Windows 8 x64 RTM build 9200.
Installation went well. Everything worked fine.
I installed CIS6 Beta on it, updated and restarted. I lost my desktop, after clicking password for user, only a black screen is present.
Ctrl+Alt+Del brings the usual options, I could open Task Manager, and explorer.exe from there, which only brings My Documents folder. I could run all programs from Task Manager Run window. But, could not get the desktop.
I removed CIS from control panel and restarted. My desktop is back.
I reinstalled whole Windows 8 again, and yet again the same thing happens after installing CIS 6 beta.
Has any one already had this issue. If yes, please suggest me what to do.
Otherwise, I would like to report a bug for this issue.
If it’s the same, taskmanager or Killswitch (set to act as taskmanager re cntrl-alt-del should show nothing loaded under explorer.
What I used to do was logout using taskmanager, enter a normal (non-admn) user account, wait 5 mins for all progs to load, then log out again, then log in again to the normal account.
I think explorer was timing out loading stuff for some CIS-related reason. I also found that it only happened when or shortly after I had undertaken major changes. My gusss was that something windows installer related might be happening, but it’s just a guess.
I have the exacly same problem here, and that’s sad because i only trust on Comodo IS =/ I guess i have to try another security product for a while… Oh, this problem happens with CIS 6 Beta and CIS 5.12, what should i do about this?
