Last night, Apr. 20, 2015, at around 11pm, I received a Comodo AV update pop up window so I ran the update. At restart, Windows started to load but froze. After 5 minutes, I forced the PC to shut down, restarted it, and the ASUS UEFI Bios Utility appeared stating that “Overclocking failed!” Please enter Setup to reconfigure your system. Press F1 to Run Setup.
I didn’t want to mess with any of the overclocking settings. I went into Safe Mode, ran chkdsk C: /F /R and sfc /scannow which ran without errors. Tried to restore system to a previous restore point and was unsuccessful. Tried accessing Safe Mode again and loading froze at windows\system32\drivers\CLASSPNP.SYS.
I had to use a Win 7 repair/restore disk to access System Restore and eventually found a restore date that worked.
I’ve since created a newer restore point where Comodo AV is disabled.
Are there any reports of issues with the latest virus database update?
Any suggestions on how to proceed?
I’m considering uninstalling / reinstalling Comodo Antivirus ( Product Version: 220.127.116.1108 / Database version: 21848 ) as it maybe corrupted or just incompatible due to recent changes… or maybe switch to another antivirus.
Before posting this topic, I did search your forum for any similar reports or help and didn’t find anything related.
your help is appreciated as this is my trading rig,
