Comodo windows open after logon to Win10

I have the latest CIS (firewall+antivirus) installed on my Windows 10 VM. I’ve disabled real-time antivirus scan, I’ve disabled all scheduled tasks (including automatic/periodic updates and scans), I don’t use “in-cloud” verifications, advisory, anything like that…

Still, after I start up the machine and log in, I get stuff like this:

-some automatic scan I never asked for
-the main Comodo window open (with that “call technician” balloon)
-firewall asking for internet access for various Comodo processes

What’s the reason for this behavior, and how do I get rid of this?
