I just wanted to report that I had the exact same problem as in the post “Update forever ‘installing’, but that post is closed b/c it’s marked 'Resolved.” But I had the same problem on the same day, so I think there might be a problem.
That is, yesterday, Comodo Internet Security (cfpudat.exe) kept downloading for HOURS, hogging 100% of the CPU.
I had to manually uninstall, go to the website, and re-download it.
I am having the same problem too - although not 100% resource hogging, just 50%. Still, my computer’s temperature is running at 70 degrees (Celsius) while cfpupdat.exe runs - not a good sign!
Hey Liz & Omega and and warm welcome to comodo forums!
Could you tell me what other security software is running and which security software you had installed?
Having the same problem, mine takes 50% of dual core CPU
[to NotAV]: hey and warm welcome to comodo forums!
[to all]: Please tell me what version of CIS you use and other active programs you have running, what did you have before CIS? I would apperciate if you could make a screenshot of defense+ events (CIS → defense+ → view defense+ events)
(read this only if you don’t know how to attach pics/other files)
When attach a pic by press Additional Options → Attach → Choose file and if you want to attach more pics than one click on (more attachments) that’s next to Choose file.
Have been running COMODO for years, problem started about a month ago. Processes running haven’t changed much in past year. Running on XP Home SP3

did you upgrade CIS before you had CIS 5.3?
Yes. Have upgraded for past few years
Before I begin to explain a solution I want you to know that I am interested of knowing and trying to solve the issue that’s causing the high cpu usage but sometimes it helps to solve it by reinstalling it.
1) Download CIS 5.3 32bit/64bit and CIS clean-up tool
2) Uninstall CIS and then use CIS clean-up tool as admin in safe mode (press F8-button after the computer logo)
3) Install CIS 5.3 as admin in normal mode.
In other words, will have to answer/allow requests for hundreds of normal programs all over again?
normally that would be the case if you don’t extract your settings and you “extract” by going to CIS → more → Manage my configurations → Export (give your file a name). After CIS is installed go in safe mode and import the saved settings.
The cfpudat.exe is hogging my CPU 80 to 99% and never ends downloading. I have AVG 10.0.x also running. >:(
