Comodo Updater Stopping Network Access

I’ve been using Comodo firewall for awhile now. One thing that has bothered me is the updater. While it is easy to disable, should it even be enabled with just the firewall installed?

When I install/reinstall(manual update), the firewall likes to run the updater. I have to kill the updater then turn it off completely in the configuration. Otherwise it just keeps running without stopping and prevents me from accessing the internet.

Windows 7 64-bit Ultimate SP1
Internet Explorer 9

Are you referring to the AV updater or the program updater?
