The firewall startup, when you start the computer and it has to load-up, seems to be acting up like the Spybot version 220.127.116.11 does when you first click on it to load it up. Someone should know what I’m talking about cause Spybot released a beta version which fixed it. But I think the Comodo Firewall is having the same type of issue.
I have installed Comodo Firewall v.18.104.22.1688 on 3 of my pcs (2 desktops - (1) Windows XP Home SP-2, 2 gigs, P4 3.2 Ghz, AntiVir and (1) - Windows XP Prof SP-2, 1 gig, P4 2.8 Ghz, AntiVir | and 1 laptop - Windows XP Media Center SP-2, 2 gigs, Intel Dual-core 2.4 Ghz, AntiVir.
Now each 1 of them takes about 2 minutes to load-up the firewall, when I startup the pc. I installed the basic install for each firewall cause I dislike the Defense+ feature atm. I see AntiVir antivirus load and all the other icons but the firewall doesnt load for like 2 minutes and everytime I try to open Firefox or IE, they hang for about 1 minute before opening (this only happens when I try to open them when the firewall is still loading (from startup) other than that they will not hang.
