In my first ever post many months ago now, i outlines the same issue im now having,…
This is really pissing me off…bad code
- Fresh install of XP SP3
- Network driver install - Atheros PCI Card in desktop PC (Not laptop)
- Confirm connection to internet working - OK
- Install CIS (Latest build)
- Connection disabled
- CIS obviously not working
- Remove and reinstall Atheros driver, can be done without rebooting
- No change
- Attempt to remove CIS…reboot…and my user profile has been erased.
Now ive tried this twice tonight
Including doing my Windows Updates before CIS install the 2nd lime!!!
I complained baout this once before, and then a month or so later got an email sayng “try this build”, and lo and behold it worked.
'My mistake obviously was when reinstalling windows to update to the latest build…now completely useless again. Its my fault, i though a new version was actually supposed to be better and actually functional…
Perhaps if you spent more time actually focusing on the firewall code, which is all anyone who knows what theyre doing uses of this product, instead of bloating it with stuff i have separate programs for or adding “Pro” features, you’d actually have a usable product, and i wouldnt have to go through the yoyo of working/non-working every time you seem to update.
Once again ill have to alert everyone i know, and on who’s machines i put the last decent build on, not to update their Comodo firewall, ill go one better ill find them a replacement, because this is getting beyond a joke now. This is the 3rd time (and 4th actually) that youre software has disabled my network connections and then removed my user profile. Luckily im a diligent person who tests on his own PC before rolling software out. The implications of your uninstall routine removing user profiles in a small workgroup even are frightening!!
Im done, ill go back to using tried, true and old Sygate, if they had a more up to date version id even PAY for it, rather than suffer at the hands of Comodo again.
What a waste of my time
Perhaps its time you open sourced the code so someone other than the 13yo you currently have working on it can actually get it working…
EDIT: Just noticed a new version to the one i tried. For the record the one i have tried is:
Comodo Internet Security v3.9.76924.507
Which doesnt appear in the release notes list, its a phantom, probably because they new it was buggy and released it and got too many complaints and restrospectively erased any sign of it from the changelog…
Again, poor user treatment Comodo, very poor.
