Firewall 2013 Will Only Boot After 5 Minute Wait

I looked for this issue beforehand but did not see it. I am running Windows 7 64 Bit SP1. I uninstalled Comodo Firewall version 5.12 rebooted and then installed new 2013 firewall. I have no other AV or anti-malware software installed. New version 2013 runs great for maybe 5 or 6 reboots and then suddenly becomes unresponsive at boot time. In my case the firewall does not load until 5 1/2 minutes after the desktop comes up. Have I created this issue by using the same configuration settings from version 5.12 and importing them into 2013? Please tell me I have because I love the new firewall but will wait a month or two if other issues are still being hammered out. Thanks again!

It is not recommended to insert old settings.
Too many changes.

Please try reinstalling V6 by following the advice I provide in this topic. However do not restore your old configuration.

It’s possible that the issue you’re describing is caused either by a bad install or by the old configuration. Please let us know if the problem returns.


I will do exactly as you suggest and I’ll let you know how it works out later today. Thanks again.

Things are running smooth as silk 24 hours post install. Importing the old config file really did ■■■■■ things up. I love the new interface and my boot times are crazy fast. Thank you both for your assistance. This has always been one of the best forums for support and it continues to be. Chiron, your install and config guide is an invaluable tool which I have used countless times. Thanks again!
