CIS Premium Antivirus never finishes scans. It hangs on different files, which I know are okay. The only way to terminate a scan is to restart PC. End process doesn’t work.
Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit, AMD dual core, 4GB memory.
BTW I never had this problem in a previous version. I wish I could revert to it.
No I don’t have anti virus programs running or at all on my PC. Like I said, I didn’t have thia problem with a previous version.
The files it hangs on are various extensions, i.e. M4A (music), JPG, VOB always different one and on different disk G, H, but never on C.
Something gives, but what?
I want to attach log files, but cannot find them.
I never had this problem on Vista before or on Win7 now. Maybe the problem is elsewhere.
Did you have increased the value of setting “Do not scan files larger than (MB)” or or have made other changes to the AV scanner?
I also had a similar problem with CAV before. The previous versions were fine, but after several updates without changing anything, using the same configuration, sometimes CAV stopped working during a scan or stopped on a file.
What I did was I left the AV with default settings after installation. Since CAV crashes on scans sometimes and there’s this cpu hog issue with cmdagent.exe I’m using Avira in the meantime with CFP and it works.
Try getting a copy of 3.14 it isn’t a cpu hog and you can set the anti-virus setting anyway you want and the scan doesn’t hang up. If you can’t find version 3.14 write to me at email@example.com and I’ll send you my installer of version 3.14 just let me know if you need 32 bit or 64 bit I have both.
I’ve had no problems with scans using 3.14 and that link will send you to comodo and you will get 4.1 In fact I’ve had no problems at all with any settings with 3.14 and that is why I am staying with it 4.1 is full of bugs that will make computing more harder to do what you want on your computer. So as long as I can get Anti-Virus updates I’ll be using the full suite after that I’ll still use the firewall plus defense. PS you can get 3.14 there but not the last version witch was 587 it stops on the 3.14 at 99 then jumps to version 4. And 3.14 build 587 in my opinion is the most stable version of COMODO Internet Security they put out so far. Very few problems and the ones I’ve had was my fault not turning on install mode when installing something but as far as the Anti-Virus scanner no problems at all.
That is not my experience and most certainly not true for all users. Stop blowing things out of proportion. And if you hadn’t done so please submit a bug report with the requested description of your set up.
