I just copy-paste this post of mine from the other topic if you don’t mind, because I’ve just got the tip that I should post it here.
"I’m still having the firewall driver issue on XP x64. First I thought it’s my system’s fault, it was installed about 2 years ago (but I could manage to run it for weeks), and I wasn’t able to reproduce the issue on a virtual system. Although this issue didn’t occur with the releases before the 3.9 RC2, I really hoped that if I’d reinstall my system, it’ll work just as it should. So, I decided to reinstall my system, but - before I could even test it with the latest CIS - I messed it with CSC (services.exe bug), so I had to reinstall it once again just to get for sure, which I’ve done yesterday. And guess what: there was no change at all. So, let me describe it once again (this is the 3rd time): I’m on WinXP x64 up-to-date, after I install CIS in a short peroid of time it will make my system hang. Clues: scvhost.exe (Network Service) consumes up to 50% of CPU time. We’ve found out with Ronny that it only happens when the DHCP is enabled - which normally is. How does this affect me? Well, because I’m behind a router, I could manage to set static IP for my PC, so that I can by-pass the need of the DHCP. But, if I wouldn’t have a router, I wouldn’t be able to access the Internet. Still, I can’t use Hamachi, because it uses it’s own DNS, and if I set the on that I use, it still won’t work. And as you probably know, you can’t use 2 different DNSs, so I’m out of luck. There’s no way that there would be something wrong with how I install this OS. There isn’t any problem at all on the x86 systems, the only thing that I’m doing differently is that I’m installing x64 applications in my case, whenever I can.
I’m using your product since Comodo Firewall v2, and I don’t want abandon this great software, if it’s not necessary. Whenever I install systems for my friends, I’m installing your product for them also - so I think I do my part also for your success. And they’re also pleased with CIS.
So, I want to ask all the mods here to pull the strings for me, and make the programmers check it out. The should compare the FW driver in 3.9.74913.496 RC1 with those that came after this release out, because that’s the latest release, which works as it should.
I have waited over 5 releases, and there’s still no change, so I’m getting here quite disappointed. Please try to fix it - I’m pretty sure you can do this in no time at all - you’ve got all the information you need to know. If you need more, just ask for it. I don’t want to update to a newer system just because of this issue. This is a quite decent OS, there’s nothing so far that I couldn’t run on it. I’d rather change CIS to something else if there’s no other way. Sorry for not posting this earlier, but like I’ve said it before, I was having another issue with CSC.
Please keep me updated about this. Thank you."
I did also a quick investigation in “Firewall Bugs” to avoid creating the same topic, and I’ve found out the there are still some others, who have the same issue on their systems like me. I hope it this gets here more attention then on the other page, and will now be fixed unlike in the previous releases. If more details are needed, just ask for it. I just hope that this time I’m going to have some useful replies. Thank you.
