Defefence + driving me nuts

I have the latest version of comodo (552) downloaded from here. I have been having problems for 2 weeks with the defence + and updates. I have done 2 complete clean installs from scratch, even after using tuneup 2009 to clean the registry and Comodo system cleaner. This program is also using a very high amount of cpu usage when loading taking my boot time from about a minute to at least 5 minutes. This is very frustrating as previous versions have been great in this respect. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

Hi Ron

Please check out this thread. It appears CSC sometimes causes high cpu usage at boot time.


Thanks for the reply but there is more to this. With my last clean instal even doing a registry clean now every time i boot eventually I get the it’s not working right. I shut it down, go to my task manager and for the next 2 minutes or so cmd.exe is still using 58% of the cpu, so what’s up with that. like I said in my first post the earlier version seemed more stable than this one. I’m stumped at this point and I have been a loyal Comodo fan for a long time now. ???

What OS are you on? What other security programs are running in the background? Try disabling them and see if that helps or not.

XP Pro. Nothing else runnig for other software in the background. I’m beginning to think it’s a windows problem. (:SAD)

Are you willing to try a real clean install in which a clean up tool is used?

If so uninstall, reboot when asked and run the tool. In case you have had other security programs have installed make sure there are no drivers left of these programs. Follow the next steps to do so.

We are gonna take a look to see if there are some old drivers of your previously uninstalled security programs are still around. Go to Device Manager → View → show hidden devices → now look under Non Plug and Play drivers → when you see a driver that belongs to your previous security programs click right → uninstall —> reboot your computer.

When the problem persists make sure there are noauto starts from your previous security programs download Autoruns and run it.

This program finds about all auto starts in Windows. This tool can therefore seriously damage Windows when not handled properly. After starting go to Options and choose to hide Windows and Microsoft entries and then push F5 to refresh.

Now check all entries to see if there are references to your previous security program. When you find them untick them. After unticking reboot your computer and see what happens.
