'CIS Updater Application' says 'Updates are available', but there are none?


Yes today is my day of creating topics!

For the first time in my CIS using days, I got a tray icon as well as popup coming from ‘CIS auto updater’ or something alike, telling me an update is available and if I wanted to proceed. Actually there was no update as i use .477 and virdef 1008 which seem the latest…

  • Anyone aware of this?
  • When was this feature added?
  • And: anyone aware is doesn’t function correctly?

Thanks any advice,


It’s not a feature, its a bug :wink:

It’s been reported many many times, so I can only assume it will be fixed in an upcoming version of CIS.

The only suggestion I can come up with is to try a clean uninstall (using Revo Uninstaller or something similar), followed by a reinstall of v.477.

This is very much a lingering bug :slight_smile:

Thanks Beanie,

well, a shame it is a bug as i like it as a feature (the popup saying ‘update available, wanna proceed?’, but af course only when it actually notifies when there is an update available…


The pop up notification of a new update is a real feature, but it popping up when there isn’t actually an update is a bug.

When the bug is fixed, you will still get a notification when an update is actually available :BNC

Sorry if I confused you.

The popup notification is a bug. I have CIS 3.8.65951.477 only firewall with defense+, clean install, and each time I start my notebook the CIS autoupdate say that a update is avalaible. My solution was to stop the automatic update:
Comodo Firewall - settings - update - uncheck Automativally check for the program updates.

Best regards.

The bug is that the update notification is popping up when there is no available update.

Just for info, this is in the Bug Report forum. I found a fix for 3.8.64739.471 which also seems to work for the latest version.
