Thanks very much. Moving to verified now!

This seems to be the closest to my problem that I’ve seen in the various bug reports. So, rather than create a new one, I’ll pile on this one if that’s allowed - or I can post it as a new bug, if you’d prefer.

Ooops Bug window pops up and locks machine

The bug/issue

  1. What you did:
    Web server that runs Blackboard LMS (IIS and Tomcat)

  2. What actually happened or you actually saw:

  3. What you expected to happen or see:
    Bug window pops up that does not lock down the machine.

  4. How you tried to fix it & what happened:
    I have reduced the Defense+ and AV settings - this seemed to slow the problem down, but did not eliminate it. I have now disabled D+ and AV, but there is no change - the problem still occurs.

  5. If its an application compatibility problem have you tried the application fixes?:
    Nothing is run on the server except the Web application (Blackboard 8.0.475, it is fully current).

  6. Details (exact version) of any application involved with download link:
    I can’t get details from the d/l link because it freezes up the machine.

  7. Whether you can make the problem happen again, and if so exact steps to make it happen:
    I haven’t been able to make it happen on demand, but it will happen within a matter of days on its own.

  8. Any other information (eg your guess regarding the cause, with reasons):
    I’m assuming there is a specific IIS or Tomcat request that is confusing Comodo, but I haven’t found it yet. None of this occurred prior to upgrade to 5.0 - 4 worked like a charm and I’m going to revert unless you say otherwise.

Files appended. (Please zip unless screenshots).

  1. Screenshots illustrating the bug: Same as provided by “BugReport”

Hey and Welcome to the forums jvhealy

Try to re-install CF by uninstall it, clean the registies from CF with CSC (comodo system cleaner) or other and then install it again.


Hello Valentin,

No difference, I’m afraid. I just had the same error on one of the servers after a registry clean (using CSC) and a reinstall. This one today seemed to fire the bug up with Tomcat. It didn’t lock the machine in the sense that I could “Don’t Send” out of it and Tomcat seemed to work appropriately after that.

Any other thoughts?


use this commando to see if you comodo has created any dumps %AllUsersProfile%\Comodo\CISDumps.


Nothing from today’s event, but here are all of the dump files on this box.

I ended up having to ditch CIS 5 - the bug problem described above just kept happening despite many re-installations and system/registry cleanings. It was not a question of if it would happen, but when. Again, this is occurring on 10 different servers, so it’s a fairly representative sample of a real-world implementation.

I have reverted back to 4.1.150349.920 and all is working well again - the problem simply does not occur in previous versions of CIS.

what Windows do you use?

These are all Win2k3 64 Bit boxes.

CIS 5 will only work on XP/Vista/7 (32 or 64bit)
