Doubling up on executables?

Good Day All -

My desktop is equipped with Windows XP (sp3) with all the latest patches and updates, along with CIS (firewall only) v3.8.248.474 and Secunia PSI v1.0.0.4. In case you aren’t familiar with it, Secunia is a product that scans installed apps on one’s machine to confirm they are up-to-date and offers links to the vendor’s update pages for ones that aren’t. It’s pretty slick!

I just completed a Secunia scan and it shows two entries for Comodo, as shown below:

C:\Program Files\Comodo\Firewall[b]cfp.exe[/b]
C:\Program Files\Comodo\Firewall\Repair[b]cfp.exe[/b]

Secunia is detecting the two “cfp.exe” files. What is the purpose of the “Repair” sub-directory and why keep two active cfp.exe files in the Comodo parent directory? I don’t think its causing any problems, but it does make Comodo show up twice whenever I perform a scan of any kind for adware or viruses. It’s misleading - or am I overlooking something and indeed actually have a problem?

Hello actually your v3.8.248.474 is an a old version of CIS…

v3.8.65951.477 is the latest official update… and soon 3.9 will be released… to update click miscellaneous> Check for updates… :-TU

So secunia is reporting correctly!

Also regarding you having two cfp files, don’t worry only one is in use, the other is there as a backup if things go wrong so the program can auto repair the installation… =)
