Decided to try new security system after reading excellent results about Comodo Firewall. After downloading and installing FW, decided to try other Comodo products - now wish I hadn’t.
Previously was temporarily using XP firewal and NOD 32 with a number of on access spyware and malware/trojan ninjas in reserve.
THis is what I did:
Installed comodo backup. No problems (except annoyingly refuses to boot to systray and I’m already PO with having to close window on every re-boot. Have ticked minimize on opening but doesn’t work - but that’s another thread).
Next I stopped NOD32 and installed Com Firewall - no problems.
Re-started NOD 32 - No problems
Using Com Launch Pad, downloaded CAV, uninst’d NOD32 and installed CAV - no problem
Downloaded BOClean started install - comp crashed and re-booted during first few seconds of install.
Turned off firewall, disabled Com. AV and
started re-install - crashed when attempting to load core kernel module (driver?) - BCOD error
…sorry, didn’t write this down but something about bad_pool_call.
Booted in safe mode - installed CBO - seemed to reboot but maybe another crash
Booted into normal - crashed again, same screen as before.
Re-booted into normal - no probs but no sign of Com BO - not in sys tray - not in add/remove prog list. I won’t re-install anything until I get feedback here.
One othe point that may/not be related - after first product install of Com Backup, I could see it in launchpad but not so with all the other installs. According to lauch pad, Firewall & Anti V are not installed but I can see them in the sys tray so it must be lying to me. IMHO launch pad is a nuisance - it’s doing nothing but using resources and adding to boot time - why can it not be an optional component?
Await some kind response - thanks. I so want to be able to say this: (S)
