Yesterday I found that Comodo was blocking an update of shockwave, so I attempted to clear it by removing it from my blocked events. Now I have trouble seeing a couple web page features, and have gotten a hundred or so Firewall events all blocking Windows Operating System TCP/UDP. I’ve attempted to go to Firewall > Network Security Policy to see if there is anything being blocked there that I can unblock, but nothing is listed as being blocked - everything has a green check except "block and log all unmatiching requests under CIS.
How can I remedy this? I can find no obvious blocking under Defense +, either.
On a possibly related note, for some time I have not been able to install Service Pack 3, due to “…smss.exe being used by another application - please close other application and try again” I can not find out how to identify and close this other app. I run AVG 8.5 antivirus on an XP machine.
