Hi kirsh, welcome to the forums.

CFP doesn’t normally use a shortcut to startup, it uses a Registry entry, but a shortcut will work. The reason why the GUI is appearing is that CFP is usually started with the “/background” option & this is probably absent.

"C:\Program Files\Comodo\Firewall\CPF.exe" /background

I suspect that another security product you’re currently running stopped CFP from creating a proper Registry startup entry when it was installed. The easiest way to get the startup entry created is to re-install CFP (remembering to allow CFP to create the auto-run registry entry).
