To hopefully stop a nasty Comodo crash, I uninstalled Comodo Internet Security (v5.10.228257.2253). However, before removing CIS I went into “Manage My Configurations” and exported the “COMODO - Firewall Security” configuration, which was the only one “Active”. Unplugged the Network Cat cable (which I think should be mentioned in the Instructions) and ran Revo Uninstaller. Once that was finished I rebooted the computer twice to make sure the uninstall was happy.
Once that was completed, I installed Comodo Firewall (v5.10.228257.2253). After making a couple of changes in the installer options, the CF install was painless and went smoothly. Rebooted the computer and once that was completed I reconnected the Network Cat cable. At this point CF appears to be running okay, and only time will tell if the crashing has ceased.
Went into “Manage My Configurations” and using “Import”, I located the “COMODO - Firewall Security” configuration file I exported earlier. Comodo recognized the file as valid, said that a file already existed, which I allowed to be overwritten and Comodo said the configuration file was successfully imported.
However, nothing in any of the Comodo configuration panels appears to be modified by the import of the configuration file.
Question; even though the previous and current version is exactly the same, could installing CF instead of reinstalling CIS have resulted in some sort of incompatibility for the failed import of the configuration file?
Or, have I misunderstood the purpose of Exporting and Importing the configuration file?
