When one of my machines is booting up and adding items to the tray, if I launch the Comodo Firewall box from the tray it shows an orange icon and says under System Status…
“Please wait while system is being Initialised.”
Does this mean that the Firewall is inactive and the machine is not being protected until it initialises or does the message only relate to access to the menu items?
What will happen if I attempt to establish a connection before the GUI gives an “everything is OK” sign. Would I get a pop-up for the attempted connection or would the connection be put on pause until the the GUI loads?
This kind of “behaviour” actually happened to me aswell for 2 times now (with .509) on my Windows 7 RC x64 machine. I mean, pc started and got to the desktop but after that no icons even got to the tray and the whole system was unresponsive (could see wallpaper and could move mouse around but no input of any sort was possible, mouse clicks or keyboard keys). Pressing the reset button on the pc case was the only thing I could do.
Needed to boot in Safe Mode and then again in Normal mode for Windows to boot normally again.
After checking the event log, i noticed the freeze was caused by several, 1 minute apart, errors with this message: “A timeout (30000 milliseconds) was reached while waiting for a transaction response from the eventlog service.”
Hope this gives you guys a clue on anything because something is still wrong with .509 :-[
Anyway, thanks for a great piece of software that is CIS :-TU
The last update .530 has solved my slow initialization problem, but NOD32 still shows a red exclamation mark for about 20 seconds. Although, it still updates, but seems to hold the internet connection closed for that time. Will monitor it for awhile.
