Firewall Process won't terminate in WinXP shutdown

Firewall V5.0.163652.1142 – last release introduced failure of Comodo background process to shutdown when closing Windows XP Home Ed SP3, fully updated. Prevents logging off Windows session, requires resetting CPU. Process will not terminate under Task Manager.
Seems to terminate if several minutes pass without internet traffic before shutdown commences. Apparently does not handle interuption during traffic properly. Never encountered in prior versions.

WHY WE ASK YOU TO FOLLOW THESE GUIDELINES
Bugs/issues can be impossible or very time consuming to fix if developers don’t have enough information to reproduce them. Since CIS is free, development time is limited. So if you want your issue fixed, please use the format below to describe it.

To avoid clutter, issues not described in the format below your post will not be moved to the ‘moderator verified’ issues topic. This means that the developers may not look at it.

Best wishes and many thanks in anticipation

We would very much appreciate it if you would edit your first post to create an issue report in line with the bug forum guidelines and format here. You can copy and paste the format from this topic.

Unfortunately we do need this issue to be reported in the right format, and with all the information we have asked for, if we are to forward it to verified issues.

For the moment I am going to move it to the Orphaned/Resolved child board. If you do manage to edit your post to create a complete issue report in standard format, and PM an active mod, we will of course consider moving it to verified reports.

The devs only look at the Orphaned/Resolved board if they have time, so please do edit the post and PM an active mod if you want it fixed.
