I pre-warn I’m visually impaired which makes things extra difficult for me. So DON’T tell me to ‘search the forums’. There are MANY refs to this and I have to use TTS to sift through the noise and try to find anything helpful. Yes, no prizes for guessing I’m getting pretty upset about this.
This is getting ridiculous. It seems this problem, the ‘COMODO Security Agent could not be started’, has been had by may for years now and yet you lot are no closer to providing a solution.
I have tried to re-install cfw for over a week now (this time) and I get the above error EVERY time after I reboot. When I click to run the diagnostics tool, nothing happens.
I followed all the advice I could find on this forum including running the uninstall, running the TWO removal apps and batch file and also going through my system and physically deleting anything called ‘COMODO’ and CIS on my system drive. Geez, you leave a lot of ■■■■ behind!
I run Windows 7 64bit SP1, I have uninstalled any and ALL apps that even hint at having anything to do with security, antivirus, malware - no protection whatsoever.
I have gotten pretty good at fixing the usual Comodo ‘no internet’ after it craps itself’ problem. I go straight to my network adapter settings abd uninstall the Comodo Firewall driver which seeming defaults to BLOCK ALL when th app fails.
I have used and sworn by CFW for years now, but I can no longer recommend it to anyone based on my problems with it over the last year. On average, I have had to reinstall it every 2-3 months after getting the above errors and it gets harder to get it working again each time. This time, it won’t co-operate at all.
One last thing I’ll try is to use an old 'stand-alone installer version of cfw and get it to update itself later. If that fails, unless someone can give me a fix quickly, I’m going shopping elsewhere. BTW, I’m getting tired of uninstalling the PUP - Dragon. I already have a browser thanks.
