Forgive the lack of logs or reports, I’m trying to post this as quickly as possible before my computer crashes the browser again. I also have not figured out where to get the log files from(couldn’t find it in options).
My Comodo Security Suite keeps running a task “Cache Cleaner”, and it never finishes. It claims to run in the background, but the reality is that it takes over 50% of my processor, even if I run something that needs the full amount. Naturally this makes my computer mostly useless because it’s crashing on even simple things like the web browsers.
I can terminate the task by using the Comodo Task Manager, but as soon as I step away from the computer for more then about 15 minuites, it comes right back up. It does stay shut off if I am constantly using the PC.
Since many of the things I use my computer for require it to be running while I am away(such as Minecraft Servers for everyone else on our LAN, or 3d Rendering programs that take several hours to produce results), this is not an acceptable solution. I need to be able to leave my system alone without babysitting it and know for sure that it won’t crash the other programs by starting up this service in Comodo.
I’ve tried leaving it on overnight with priority set to “High”. It makes no difference what the priority is set to because it still takes exactly 50% of the CPU. If I kill the job in the Comodo Task Manager, the CPU use in task manager drops to 5%, the normal amount it was at before this issue.
I’ve run it on high for 17 hours straight, and still found it running the next day. My computer only takes 4 hours to run a full virus scan of all directories on both Hard Drives, so whatever it is trying to do it is probably stuck.
I’ve also tried unchecking the “Run Cache builder when computer is idle” option, as suggested in another thread. Either Comodo is ignoring my settings, or the Cache Cleaner is not related to the builder. It still is running the cache cleaner regardless.
Toggling Real Time Scanning or checking for updates also has no effect on the Cache Cleaner. It does show up right away if I run an update check though. This leads me to believe that it’s probably trying to clean up whatever temp files are used for updating Comodo. I don’t know what to do with this info however.
Please, I really need to turn this “feature” off or get Comodo to stop using 50% of the CPU, so my computer is useful again!
