BSOD Driver IRQL not less or equal e100b325.sys with Comodo Firewall
Problem can be reproduced by enabling Intel Pro/100 VE network adapter when Comodo Firewall is installed.:
If U can, exact steps to reproduce. If not, exactly what U did & what happened:
1: Make a clean install of Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 with all critical updates applied.
2: Make sure the onboard Intel Pro/100 VE network adapter is enabled in the system BIOS.
2: Then install Comodo Internet Security.
3: Restart the computer as requested by CIS after installation.
4: A BSOD occurs immediately after the computer starts.
One or two sentences explaining what actually happened:
Windows Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) for Driver IRQL not less or equal
Stop: 0x000000D1 (0x00000000, 0x00000002, 0x00000000, 0x97110FC)
e100b325.sys 97110FC base at 927050000, Datestamp 473de72c occurs when starting computer if the onboard Intel Pro/100 VE network adapter is enabled in the system BIOS.
One or two sentences explaining what you expected to happen:
Windows 7 to operate normally as did with CIS version 5 previously installed. There should be no BSOD.
If a software compatibility problem have you tried the conflict FAQ?:
Any software except CIS/OS involved? If so - name, & exact version:
Any other information, eg your guess at the cause, how U tried to fix it etc:
Comodo Firewall appears to cause a problem with Intel Pro/100 family of integrated network adapters built into ASUS motherboards. Problem has occurred on 2 different systems with same motherboard. I have an ASUSTeK P4P800-VM Pentium 4 motherboard.
Problem resolved by disabling onboard Intel Pro/100 VE network adapter in system BIOS.
Problem did not occur when using CIS version 5 or earlier versions - only since CIS 6.
I have a further IBM ThinkCentre 8429-KG7 system running Windows XP SP3 which has an Intel Pro/100 VE onboard network adapter with CIS 7.0.317799.4142 installed and no problems at all - which suggests that this issue is specific to Windows 7 as well as CIS with the e100b325.sys device driver.

B. YOUR SETUP
Exact CIS version & configuration:
Comodo Internet Security version 7.0.317799.4142
Modules enabled & level. D+/HIPS, Autosandbox/BBlocker, Firewall, & AV:
Default initial installation with no changes to those defaults given by CIS itself.
Have U made any other changes to the default config? (egs here.):
Have U updated (without uninstall) from CIS 5 or CIS6?:
Problem first experienced when CIS 5 updated to CIS6 via check for updates.
[b]if so, have U tried a a a clean reinstall - if not please do?[/b]: Yes, including clean install of Windows 7 SP1, but this did not solve the problem.
Have U imported a config from a previous version of CIS:
if so, have U tried a standard config - if not please do:
OS version, SP, 32/64 bit, UAC setting, account type, V.Machine used:
Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit, default UAC settings, Administrator account
No virtual machine involved.
Other security/s’box software a) currently installed b) installed since OS, including initial trial security software included with system:
a= None b= None
Vanilla install of Windows 7 Ultimate purely for testing purposes to isolate cause of BSOD.
