I’ve read through all of the “uninstall problem” posts that I can find and don’t find a solution to my specific problem.
After reinstalling windows to get rid of some problems, I installed the Comodo suite of programs except for anti-virus since I wasn’t using this computer for emails. Then the problems started:
At first, IE7 would open at startup and go to the Comodo AntiSpam download page. Thought that was strange but simply put off doing anything about it for a while.
Then when I noticed that the offered page was an upgrade, I clicked on the download button but nothing happened. A couple of days later, tried it again and it worked and started uninstalling my existing copy. During this step, said it couldn’t find a file and asked me to insert a disk. Since I bought the Comodo disk I tried that but it couldn’t find the file it was looking for. I looked everywhere in my computer but couldn’t find it. Can’t remember the name but it was something like Comodo Anti-Spam Installation.msi - I just remember it having a strange extension like that .msi or .mst or something like that.
I had no choice but to abort the uninstall and this of course aborted the install process too. Now I have a whole host of new problems. The computer can’t see the internet or the Windows Home Server (WHS) I have. So I can’t get online to diagnose. I tried a system restore and this fixed the network problem but the uninstall program keeps popping up at startup and everytime I try to open IE7. Man, what a mess.
So the only thing I could do at this point was to restore the computer from a backup on the WHS. This fixed everything but when I tried to remove CAS this time, it did the same thing. So now I have these install windows popping up at startup and even stopping IE7 from loading correctly. It’ll hang the first 2 times I try to open it then open and work, but every new page pops up the install window for about a second.
Now, I’ve tried the programs suggested that show everything that’s loaded at startup and there is nothing from Comodo in there except the CFP, CMF, and BoClean.
Any ideas anyone?
