Comodo firewall : newest version
OS : Windows 7 ultimate
Even after closing the tray icon and killing two processes related to comodo, it seems comodo firewall is still working.
I couldn’t launch many programs which need internet connection, even after closing the tray icon and killing two processes.
So I thought - ‘what if I uninstall comodo firewall now?’
So I uninstalled comodo firewall. Before reboot, I tested again. This time everything was OK - I was able to launch those programs with no problems.
I observed this phenomenon in two computers. Looks like this is a nature of comodo firewall…
Q1) Is it normal phenomenon ?
Q2) Is it intentional ?
Q3) How can I stop comodo firewall completely (not uninstalling the program) ?
The situation is very irregular, and hard to explain because my English isn’t that good… I will record it with cam and write again.
(The two processes I refered above are cmdagent.exe and cavwp.exe, and I installed comodo firewall without chromodo and geek buddy and I disabled HIPS. Otherwise it is default installation. I rebooted after install. )
Comodo is still working when comodo process is off. Moreover, it is working badly(blocking internet or blocking launching). If I turn on comodo process, then everything becomes OK.
I also observed its reverse many times but I didn’t uploaded to youtube yet - when comodo process is turned on, everything is OK, if I shutdown comodo, IE and firefox does not work properly.
Cmdagent.exe is the service that does the protective work. Under it runs inspect packet filter driver. Closing down cmdagent.exe when CIS is running may give unexpected results. It is better not to turn off the firewall by terminating cmdagent.exe.
Thank you. Of course my goal is not closing down cmdagent.exe.
My goal is practical : “I want to use comodo firewall function most of the time, but sometimes I want to turn off all comodo firewall function. I want to use comodo firewall freely, like a lamp switch.”
The first thing I could do to turn off comodo firewall function was closing comodo tray icon. So I closed the comodo tray icon.
And I executed IE. IE didn’t work. It means comodo is doing something background. So I went further - I terminated cavwp.exe. Then I executed IE. Still IE didn’t work. So I went even further - I terminated cmdagent.exe. But IE didn’t work even this time.
I want to just temporaliy shutdown all comodo function.
