I have decided to try Comodo Antivirus (testing for company-wide usage). I have a brand new Laptop that I have installed Comodo A/V (newest version - v.22.214.171.124) on. It installs fine and all seems well until I try to run any scan. It will not start a manual scan (whether it be system, file, memory, etc . . .) or a scheduled scan. I have un-installed, redownloaded and re-installed and have the same problem. What is going on? Is this a known issue? There is no other Antivirus or antispyware software running on this PC yet (it’s “brand new” and I haven’t finished installing / setting up other software yet). If this is the way it behaves, I can’t trust it for company-wide use - I’ll go back to AVG which I’ve been very happy with.
It’s Win XP Pro with all updates. It was a fresh clean install that never had Anti-Virus or Anti-Spyware installed. Since posting I have installed Windows Defender & Lavasoft Ad-Aware 2007 (free version w/o Real-Time Protection). It’s a completely “normal” clean new Install of XP Pro. Running 1 Administrator Account.
It’s a normal 32-bit XP. There are no error messages at all - in fact nothing at all happens, as if your clicking a “dead” button. I try to check the running processes and it doesn’t look like anything is running in the background - remains at 99% idle.
General Settings: “All Files”. Under Advanced: there are no exclusions. The only settings I changed after installing was that I turned off HIPS (too annoying and I can’t trust other users to “Allow” or “Block” properly.
