I was just prompted to update Comodo firewall on my Windows 7-PC and did so. Comodo Free Firewall now reports that version 22.214.171.12478 is loaded. When update is re-executed I get the following error in my log:
Error: 0x80030201 - The file download was aborted abnormally. The file is incomplete.
Did I, in fact, update to the latest version?
2.What is causing the error and how do I go about fixing it?
Widows Solution center reported a problem with my system right after the firewall update, but neither indicated what it was nor found a solution, but everything, including Comodo free firewall seems to be working fine.
Have I created a bigger problem or not?
Any light you can shed of this mystery would be much appreciated.
I renamed & deleted \proto_v6 as recommended; cold booted, a new folder was created; reinitialized Comodo Free Firewall update and received the exact same error as before. Sorry it didn’t work.
I thought about reinstalling the product from scratch, but because I have a download error of some kind, I’m not sure I won’t be left with less functionality than I have now, so I’ll forego a reinstall now.
I executed Regsvr32 recognizer.dll as the Administrator and was notified that it succeeded; however, upon running update within Comodo free firewall I received the same error as before. I rechecked viruscope within advanced settings and recognizer.dll is still not shown there. Things look exactly as my attachment in reply #13.
As to a reinstall, are any of my concerns expressed to you in reply #7 valid? If not, should I uninstall the firewall first or can I overwrite what I have?
