I’m satisfied with Comodo firewall but I have some problem. I can’t shutdown or restart my PC when Comodo is installed. I tryed to closed Comodo before shutting down PC, but it doesn’t helped. When I try to shutdown my computer, I still see the screen that Windows XP is saving settings but can’t turn out! After complete uninstalling of Comodo, the troubles gone out.
I will reply later. I’m not at home at this moment, so I can’t check the version I have installed, but I think it will be 18.104.22.168, because I have used the download link from the first page of Comodo website. If so, mabye I could wait for stable 2.3, not beta version. Version 2.3 will be launched today? Really?
You can try the following with this release:
Close CPF manually and then try to shutdown to see if it will solve the problem. 10 minutes is not an acceptable time at all. A couple of seconds would be understandable. What other security software do you have?
You might try installing and using the Microsoft User Profile Hive Cleaning Service, uphclean.exe. It is available from Microsoft: use Google to locate it. Its function is to deal with cleanup when programs are slow about releasing their Registry connections. Very unobtrusive and useful.
