I’m not sure why this happens, but very frequently my Comodo Firewall taskbar icon is unresponsive. Clicking it doesnt yield anything, and only after a few minutes does the firewall interface pop out. My CPU usage is low, and I dont have too many programs running.
My suspicions are that it happens only when a new program is initiating and Comodo is preparing to display the firewall alerts to prompt me for a decision. However, even this alert takes a long time to appear, and this is greatly irritating me.
I’m on Windows XP SP2 and the latest firewall version.
The only other security software I have is Avira AntiVir Personal (free edition).
I think this problem only occurs when a new software is initiating. The alert box prompting me for a response should pop up immediately but for some reason it doesn’t, and Comodo become unresponsive. The alert box only comes up 2 or 3 minutes later, and when that happens the taskbar icon is responsive again.
I only have the firewall. I will check for memory/cpu variations the next time this happens. So far it hasnt happened again, which confirms my suspicions that it only happens when an alert box is about to appear.
