I’ve been using CIS 6 for a few days and I’m constantly getting firewall popups that disappear almost instantly after appearing (they don’t even stay on screen for a second - I probably wouldn’t even notice most of them without that sound that is played when a popup is shown).
I attached a print screen of my firewall log. All events shown suffered from this problem, the warnings didn’t even stay on screen long enough for me to read them.
I tried to change the alert timeout (in firewall settings) and the problem persists.
I’ve been using comodo firewall for quite some time and this only started happening after I upgraded to v6.
Not sure if this is normal, a bug or maybe I just need to change some configuration. Thanks in advance for the help!
sorry not much of a help but I had a very similar issue with F/W pop ups flickering and I narrowed it down to 1 particular software incompatibility, after uninstalling the conflicting program all ran smooth
DrHaze, no, it doesn’t. I right click the systray icon and everything seems to be normal (nothing flashing)
EricJH , yes, it started after I updated to v6.
I had just finished formatting my system drive and reinstalling Windows (Windows 8 x64), and CIS was one of the first things I installed (which makes all this even weirder). I downloaded it from Comodo website (didn’t even noticed it was a new version untill after it was installed).
Hello all Comodo user for 3 years +, just joined to say I’m having the same problem. A windows process was trying to connect to the internet and the popup would immediately close, I only found out it was a windows process after I looked at the log fine, I then added it manually to the trust list which fixed the problem. But it happened again with another Windows process? Anyway I’m using Zone Alarm right now but I want to go back to Comodo, would be nice if when there was a fix it was posted here.
Same here. Upgraded a few PC’s to Windows 8 Pro x64, My PC’, my laptop, my sons PC and a friends PC. We ended up doing a fresh install on my Son’s PC and when we installed Comodo I noticed the new version so I figured I would update my PC’s, thats when the fun started.
On my Laptop I get the same issue at the OP.
I tried resetting everything back to default for Comodo with no luck. I can view the sys tray icon fine and change the settings. Every once in a while a pop up will actually stay up and I can choose what I want to do, but thats rare.
I have another Comodo issue on my gaming PC but its a separate issue. Only reason I bring it up is because out of 4 PC’s 2 of them are having issues. We all have been using Comodo for years and this is by far the worst version yet.
For a test since I did see on a few of the pop ups that DASHOST.exe was the program trying to run. I created a rule for DASHOST that would ask me for anything it was trying to run, that still didn’t work.
Being a Comodo user for the last years. I bought a new Laptop with windows8 64bit. First thing installed was Comodo and I have these short alarms-popups where I can’t respond to (too fast - cant even read em)
I think an update is needed. Otherwise will have to use another s/w.
I have the same problem with Windows 8.1 32b
For some reason, sometimes the popups disappear in less than a second.
When that happens, I can’t even disable the firewall because the confirmation popup also disappears. Exit button works, but if I start the program again, the problem is still there. I have to restart the computer to make Comodo work normally again.
It doesn’t matter which program generated the popup.
I use Avast antivirus and the default radeon drivers.
I also had the same problem with Windows 8 64b, using AVG and Avast.
