Win 7 HP 32bit
Firewall version unknown. It’s not actually there.
Without my doing it, I suddenly found that I had Comodo Firewall instead of CIS. I have no files downloaded that are to install the Firewall, that I can find.
I decided to simply reinstall the CIS. But I am told that the Comodo firewall is stopping the CIS install and has to be manually uninstalled before I can proceed. I can’t uninstall because there is no reference to the firewall in any uninstall facility. AFAICS it was never actually installed, but just appeared.
So I killed all files that I could and did the “brutal”: going through the registry deleting any reference to Comodo.
I still cannot install CIS, because the firewall needs to be uninstalled first.
This could cloud things a little, but I feel I should mention it. At almost the same time I had exactly the same trouble with another programme. It also will not let me install, because a previous install is there. It is otherwise unrelated: Sony Vegas Video Suite.
I realise I may have some deeper trouble here, but if I could try to get rid of this non-existent firewall I would at least feel that a step had been taken and I would feel a lot safer with CIS again installed…
Thanks for any help
EDIT: I tried to reinstall the firewall after downloading the install file, but was also blocked. I have also done a complete system clean
