comodo hogging cpu after a while + remainning connections


at first everything seems fine and both cpf.exe and cmdagent don’t take over 10% but after a while running (about half an hour and a great few critical events afterwards, it seems), the cpu usage doesn’t go below 40% (being most of thee time almost twice higher than that!)… any idea why?? (machine info upon request)

another issue seems to be remaining connections upon closing of some progs such as emule… - is there any way to handle’em manually? it also seems to happen with utorrent… not sure if it’s the cause but it gets to the point that my browser (and anything else for that matter) times out in every attempt to do anything…
