Hi I have attached the diagnostics file. 1st 2 reboots are ok. 3rd reboot is delayed. But 3rd disgnostics after reboot says no problems but actually the boot is delayed. Also attached are the kilswitch delayed boot log, sysinternal procmons bootlog. [FYR]
COMODO Firewall Free is a good product But I report a possible update bug/problem.
On 2 differents Laptop machines with Windows XP (SP3 et SP1)
Since some few days I have encountered problem at Windows Startup.
Machine lock for near 3 minutes at each restart : after machine work normally.
The problem have been encountered on a first machine there are some few days.
Now the second machine is affected.
I have restored machines with factory softwares, I have scanned the machines with Comodo full Endpoint, and with special Anti-Malware software & with some other Anti-Virus. Nothing have been reported. I have restored BIOS settings… etc. It change nothing.
If I remove COMODO Firewall the machines start normally. But if I update COMODO with the lasts updates, I need to wait like 3 minutes during windows startup :o … After machines work normally. But problem continue to appear at each startup. …You have time to drink a Coffee during the Startup
While the machine Lock at startup the machines do nothing… “it is like executing a loop of ‘do nothing’ for 3 minutes”…
You must note that I have just wanted to report the problem

First of all : Welcome on the forum
From what I see on the forum you are not alone who face this type of behavior. Best wait the next update that will be out next week. Again is a small update that will fix the network issue, but who knows, you should try it. If you experience the same issue, return to 6.0.
Thank you very much for your report in standard format, with all information supplied. The care you have taken is much appreciated by Comodo, and will increase the likelihood that this bug can be fixed.
Developers may or may or may not communicate with you in the forum or by PM/IM, depending on time availability and need. Because you have supplied complete information they may be able to replicate and fix the bug without doing so.
I have the same problem after the last update - system Windows load more than 3 minutes. I uninstalled completely CIS and installed the new - the result is the same - a long download.
Where can I download version 6.0?
Sorry for bad english - this translator Google

Same problem here. After updating to 6.1.275152.2801 the windows boot time is extremely low, we are talking about 3/4 minutes. Before that update all was ok.
I have tried to unistall CIS6 with the defoult uninstaller and then with Comodo Uninstaller Tool
Even with a fresh CIS 6 installation the problem is the same, tried to roll back with CIS 6.0 and all is returning to working good.
This is my machine:
