Most are not having trouble with the updates. But I have in the past and always do an uninstall and reinstall after exporting my settings. Are you running Vista or XP SP2? Was the update for 22.214.171.1247?
i had a problem with 126.96.36.1997 after uninstalling and cleanup of a older version
of v3 and 188.8.131.527 installed with no problems i used it all day restarted a bunch
of times that day with no problems then i turned the pc off for the nite and the
next day i turned my pc on and and the desktop would not load but after a few trys
it loaded and i have not had trouble since
but in defince+ events log for that day it says
1/16/2008 11:12:28 PM C:\WINDOWS\explorer.exe Terminate Process C:\Program Files\COMODO\Firewall\cfp.exe
1/16/2008 11:12:30 PM C:\WINDOWS\explorer.exe Terminate Process C:\Program Files\COMODO\Firewall\cfp.exe
End of The Report
so it looks like comodo stoped explorer.exe but it got passed it and all is ok now
Sorry guys, I just got back to town and since the support fella hasn’t written me back yet I thought it was a lost cause. Here’s the gist of what I gave him as per his request:
Thank you for your time ___,
Comodo Firewall Pro 184.108.40.2067 (on an HP a1100y, XP Pro sp2, 400gb disk space [200free], 2gb ram)
Avira AnitiVir Premium Anti-virus, Windows Defender, Ad-Aware Personal, Spybot S&D, Spyware Blaster, and Hijack This (the last two are usually inactive, as the former is just a preventative measure[SB] and the latter is used only when suspicions arise [HJT]).
There is no error to speak of, that is to say, all seems well until I reboot (as suggested by CFP for the update to take effect) at which point my toolbar and icons are missing.
I attempt to run “explorer.exe” from the task manager, but am unable to do so - only the bare essentials of the OS will start up (svchost, system, etc) and only a system restore prior to the update point will recover my desktop.
I have attempted to research a solution online via various forums, etc. and have triple-checked to be sure that this particular update is the culprit; it is in fact the only variable left and the only change made to my computer before the incident.
Im having the same problems. Currently using 276, but downloaded 277, but before i install, i want to back up my config, but am not allowed. Im the Admin of my laptop (Vista Business 32bit) which is frustrating. Ive not been able to access IE since installation either, and was kind of hoping the new 277 would solve this, because currently I cannot update definitions either.
So, I might be an idiot…
It didn’t occur to me to try and run the diagnostics again to see if any issues were present, so I did just that, and sure enough…
The utility fixed whatever issue there was, I ran update and rebooted without incident.
Thanks for your patience guys. (V)
If I’m not mistaken, you can just go to “miscellaneous” and export your current configuration to a safe locale. Upon a reinstall just import said settings into the new machine (this could be complete hogwash, as it’s merely my understanding of how it should work) using the same import/export utility.
You may want to try my fix above first…GL!.
Tweak UAC makes it quick and easy to turn UAC on or off and also you can set UAC to ‘quiet mode’:
This option does not turn off UAC; instead, it only makes UAC to operate in the quiet mode. In the quiet mode, UAC does not display the elevation prompts for the administrators. That is, when you attempt to do an administrative task, you will be allowed to proceed automatically, without prompting you to confirm the operation. All other features of UAC would still be enabled: the programs will run with the standard user permissions by default, and the standard users will still see the elevation prompts (the quiet mode applies to the administrator accounts only).
Cheers guys, will give that a go when I have time, Im currently getting the firewall, and Defense to remember all the tasks, and executed programs on my laptop first. just hope I can export all these configurations, and then import them into the latest version of CFP, if not, I wont be too happy, particularly after the last attempt to export reset my admin password due to a bug that was found, and COMODO asked for me to send a message to COMODO to help with research etc, and when i did that, i was locked out of my pc.
