Hello everyone This is my first post here, sorry for it being a problem post.
Model Number: M-6337
Processor: Intel Pentium Duel CPU T2390
OS: Windows Vista Home Premium (32-bit)
Service Pack 1
Comodo Internet Security (Free)
Product Version: 3.10.102363.531
Virus Signature Database Version: 1157
The other week I updated/installed to the newest version of Safari (v4.0.2) onto my laptop. After I had installed it, it was unable to access the internet any more, I didn’t bother about it much at the time because I’ve have Safari working on my other computer.
The day before yesterday, I installed the newest version of Firefox (v3.5.1) and was unable to access it internet from it.
The first thing I did was to go to:
“Firewall → Advanced → Network Security Policy”
But all my browsers were set to “Treat as: Web Browser”…
I double-checked the file locations in the Firewall and they are identical to the installed locations.
Internet is on, TCP and UDP protocols both work fine, and my other browsers (Opera, Chrome, Netscape, IE7, Avant) still work just fine.
Next I tried re-installing Firefox into a different location, but it still will not connect.
After that I decided to reinstall the Comodo Firewall and see if that would fix it, so first I uninstalled CIS but it didn’t change anything. After installing CIS again, Firefox and Safari were still blocked.
I’m starting to think that the answer to the problem might lie somewhere inside the windows registry… I’d be willing to dig in with Regedit if I knew where to start looking.
Does Comodo edit the registry when blocking internet access to programs? What about when programs install? …Or maybe the problem isn’t from the firewall at all?
What you guys think?
