Hello Everyone !
Here we are again happy to announce that we have fixed the Compatibility issue with Google Chrome 45.x and COMODO Internet Security/Antivirus/Firewall V126.96.36.19903 Chrome Hotfix is reelased!
Existing CIS 6.x, CIS 7x and CIS 8.x users will receive an automatic update offer V188.8.131.5203 Chrome Hotfix Release update !
Ok, so I clicked on said link since you responded and it also worked fine…although I sure wasn’t expecting (among all the other things) a brand new “Chromodo” (lol) browser-particularly one that opens Yahoo! (blech). But I WAS able to open my Google Chrome page back up and make my default.
I got the 0x80070002 error code today before the hotfix, not sure what that was about as I did not normally manually update the program (if ever that I can recall).
Thank you for the new update of CISP. I just received it a half hour ago. I tried Google Chrome and the problem of it being stopped has been solved; but I uninstalled it because i am tired of the issues with Google Chrome, so I am now using the Chromodo browser which is integrated with Chrome and Dragon. A much better browser than Chrome!
Doesn’t work for me. It only works if I have Chrome in the exclusions still, and/or rename it. Have updated to this version, and rebooted afterwards
Exactly the same problem affect Vivaldi web browser (based on Chrome code), with the same solution. Works better from the executable - my start menu shortcut never works any more (yes, it’s still pointing at the correct .exe).
Windows 7 64bit, Chrome 45/46, latest version of Vivaldi snapshots.
Honestly, I just want to TURN THIS OFF. Comodo should NOT be affecting programs when I turn off that “detect shellcode” option, at all, whatsoever. That’s the core of the problem, not what the filename is or what Comodo thinks it is.
This is the correct update. Click on the ABOUT section in the Comodo Internet Security to see if you have the same version as mentioned here. If not, hit the UPDATE tab to see if there is a latest version for your PC.
I happen to still have it. It is still supported with security updates not with updates for new functions. When a new Windows gets released I buy a new hard drive for the new windows; such an amazing timing of events. The hard drive that had XP on it started to slowly die by the time the support XP was to be stopped. CIS supports Vista and XP by the way.
Yes you are right. Here is when Vista and other OS will no longer have MS support: Lifecycle FAQ - Windows | Microsoft Learn . If the link is unclickable, then copy and paste it into your default browser. Windows XP is definately out of the picture.
Vivaldi 184.108.40.206 - Prompts for update but cannot download update because of problem. Cannot start browser.
Latest snapshot: v.1.0.270.16 - Downloaded 32-bit setup, it installs but each run prompts for the same update.
Chrome latest stable, and then updated to Version 46.0.2490.22 beta-m (64-bit) - same problems with trying to start it still. Often get tabs that never load and all extensions “crash” (even no extensions enabled).
Exclusions listed on CIS. Also renamed executables. Desktop/Start Menu shortcuts NEVER work. Sometimes can coax it into working by killing processes and running the renamed .exe direct but the next time it will just do exactly the same.
Never happened prior to Chrome 45.
Have rebooted several times (SSD, so it takes literally a few seconds).
Honestly - JUST GET THE HELL OUT OF THE WAY OF LOADING EXECUTABLES LISTED ON THE EXCLUSION LIST.
