I had a very unusual problem with comodo internet securirt 3.10.102363.531 on my vista ultimate 64 bit with service pack 2:
when ever I execute an exe file, I can’t delete it afterwards.
I can delete it after restart.
That happens for almost every exe file that is run on the system no matter where.
I run a console based exe file (that has no windows GUI) and it was not locked and I could delete it. but that for some dos based programs only.
in sum up:
OS: Vista Ultimate 64bit service pack 2.
using CCLEANER - but only after the problem happend.
using windows defender - tried disabling not good.
it is not a security problem because if I don’t run the file, I can delete it, and if I restart I can delete it.
the file isn’t locked nor open by other process because:
I could not find any handle on file, and the file is not locked, since I can move it to another folder, as long it is within the same volume, I can’t move it between disks(volumes), and I can rename it. (you can’t move or rename an open or locked file), and I can change its content (not overwrite).
it doesn’t happen just because of the exe extension, some dos file with same extension can be deleted after run.
please see the following vistax64 thread - it has all the details:
at the end removing comodo internet security - solved all my problems, to bad i liked it.
BTW - disabling the defence, firewall and antivirus did not solve the problem only uninstall.
