I really like CIS. It’s a smooth program. However, I found out that when I first installed it about 30-35 days ago the Windows Explorer right-click context menu “scan with Comodo AV” stopped working about 10 days later. So I came here for advice, got it (was to do a complete re-install), did it. Then I noticed a screen after this install that I didn’t have before. Then I noticed another one, and decided to do a complete uninstall with a mid-year 2008 quality uninstaller, or so I thought I uninstalled it. I rebooted, like many years of experience has taught me, unloaded everything I could from memory/taskbar – BTW, my system is Vista Home Premium, which, if I could reach Willie Gates, I’d give him the severest mechanically-induced asthma attack known to mankind for being so presumputous as to foist on me and others I know an OS that “he thinks” is “best” for me and then has the gall to charge me for it…! It would be different if he gave it to me.
However, I digress. Back to my problem. When I tried to do a clean install again of the exact last install of CIS, the one I thought I had completely uninstalled, I got a message saying it - CIS -was running, AND → BLIP, that’s it, no further attempt at an install, hint of an install, nothing…!!! – even though there was no directory (yes, I started in the early days of DOS 1). So, I d/l’ed XYplorer because of it’s great search feature, fired it up and found about 1,000 entries for Comodo. I “nuked” 'em all, ran a registry cleaner, for about 5th or 6th time throughout this ordeal, feeling confident the problem was finally resolved. Re-booted – cleaned system, right-clicked on CIS to run as administrator, … watched…, then got up, went to my bedroom returning with my 12 ga. semiautomatic loaded with 5 rounds of #4 Buck shot, which is now leaning against what might be in the near future a rather expensive pile of 1’s and 0’s.
I did install BitDefender so I could get on the ‘Net tonight to ask for some help here without runnin’ barefoot, JIC (Just In Case) CIS wasn’t really running, leaving me open to malware attack.
So, in view of the above, short of the 12 ga., does anyone have any ideas as to how I can get a full install of CIS on my computer before I render it a trotline sinker?
At this point I’m open to anything - smoke signals, rain dances, stickin’ pins in dolls, SHOOT…! I’ll even kick my Lab puppy if I thought it might do some good.
Lookin’ for answers and desperate in The Republic of Texas.
