When trying to export my configuration settings for COMODO FIREWALL, I get a message stating that I must first run this utility in Administrator mode.
I am running 64-Bit Windows Vista, and I AM logged in as an administrator. I do have User Account Control (UAC) running, so when an application needs Administrator privileges to run, I get the typical prompts asking for permission.
To accommodate COMODO’s request, I checked the applications box “RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR”, and restarted the PC. That was a big mistake. PC would not restart properly, and most applications would not start properly. Fortunately I was able to get back to the application box and un-check that “RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR” box, and restarted PC again. Now things are back to normal.
I am ASSUMING that as the PC was restarting, COMODO FIREWALL was unable to start properly because of UAC issues, and trying to run the app in administrator mode.
How am I supposed to make this work? I don’t want to have to turn UAC off, and I’m not sure I even want to try that again.
