Comodo Firewall is set up to start at Windows startup on my Windows XP SP3 system but, for some time now, Comodo Firewall has stopped launching automatically each time I start up Windows. I have to manually launch it even though Comodo Firewall is registered in HKLM/RUN (Windows registry).
Thanks for any help.
Have you checked in Windows services if CIS one is set to “automatically”.
Do you have a startup manager which could have disabled CIS startup “by accident”? Note that Windows Defender has such a tool.
We would very much appreciate it if you would edit your first post to create an issue report in line with the bug forum guidelines and format here. You can copy and paste the format from this topic.
To understand the reasons why we ask you to follow these guidelines please see below.
WHY WE ASK YOU TO FOLLOW THESE GUIDELINES
Bugs/issues can be impossible or very time consuming to fix if developers don’t have enough information to reproduce them. Since CIS is free, development time is limited. So if you want your issue fixed, please use the format below to describe it.
To avoid clutter, issues not described in the format below your post will not be moved to the ‘moderator verified’ issues topic. This means that the developers may not look at it.
Best wishes and many thanks in anticipation
How do you establish it is not running? When you establish it is not running because there is no icon then you are looking at an XP problem: How To: Fix Missing System Tray Icons at Windows XP startup .
When you establish that it is not running in Task Manager then first make sure “View processes from all users” is enabled. When it is still not there then run Diagnostics (under More) and see if that fixes it.
Keep us posted.
We really would very much appreciate it if you would edit your first post to create an issue report in line with the bug forum guidelines and format. You can copy and paste the format from this topic.
Unfortunately we do need this issue to be reported in the full right format, and with all the information we have asked for, if we are to forward it to verified issues.
For the moment I am going to move it to the Orphaned/Resolved child board. If you do edit your post to create a complete issue report in standard format, and PM an active mod, we will of course consider moving it to verified reports.
The devs only look at the Orphaned/Resolved board if they have time, so please do edit the post and PM an active mod if you want it fixed.
