Connection to the Internet has been reset

I just downloaded Commodo and did a scan. There was one item and I was trying to upload to send to Commodo and after the upload ran a bit I got an error sign stating it couldn’t be done because connection to the Internet has been reset.

Actually, the new AVG 8.0 Anti Virus with Firewall I updated to had my system really messed up and I got this message a couple of times on something else before I uninstalled it.

What does this mean, and what can I do about it?

So your running Comodo with AVG firewall ???.

Thats Comodo VS AVG
I sujest if this is the case, uninstall AVG :), if not please reask your question in an other way so I know what you’re talking about 88) (:NRD)


Comodo Firewall and Avast Anti-virus (free) would be a much better option. Ditch AVG!

Two firewalls running at the same time is a ‘no-no’ always causes problems. :frowning:


I’m sorry – I wasn’t very clear.

I uninstalled AVG. I am only running Comodo. Also, I am running Avast.

Additionally, I had the error message wrong. The correct message is “connection to the server has been reset.”

I’m getting an awful lot of “Page not found” responses also.

Before I updated from AVG 7.5 to AVG 8 I never had any of these problems, but apparently just uninstalling it did not do the trick.

I can’t hardly download anything. It takes forever and then it might fail.

I’ve done a lot of reading I don’t understand through searches. There was a lot said about port 21 being blocked. I also read to go to Tools/Internet Options/Advanced and untick the "Use passive FTP (for firewall and DSL modem compatibility) which I did. It didn’t seem to help.

I’m running Vista Home Premium, AVAST, Comodo and Webroot Spy Sweeper.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Did you make sure if there was anything left from AVG 8 drivers, etc. before installing Comodo Firewall.
AVG 8 has LinkScanner and Web Shield it is possible you might have something left on your system.

Dennis2 – I went into Device Manager. I clicked on that View tab but there was no option to show hidden devices.

I have uninstalled AVG. However, I did a search for AVG with a program called DK Finder and it found 147 entries. But would these entries be safe to remove just because they are AVG or could removing them do something to completely crash my system?

Well always take extra care with registry scanners. Back-up the whole registry before you do anything ok? Then try to delete them and reboot. See if this does anything
