I installed Comodo a couple of days ago (after it was reccomended by CNET.com) on my main computer-> (XP Pro)& yesterday on an older machine-> (XP Home) & I was happy with it ->UNTIL<-I clicked to update it today .
My main computer is almost unusable now:
#1-> I can open Nod32-but it will not run.
#2-> I cannot open Palm Desktop (tells me I am"not authorized")
#3-> " " " System Restore " " " " " " "
#4-> " " " notepad " " " " " " "
#5-> I have the same problem with many other programs
So far I have tried the following:
#1-> Deleted Comodo thru ‘Add/Remove’ in Control panel. It is gone from there but the file is still in Windows Explorer. When I tried to delete the file from there it would not let me, also will not let me end the PROCESS in Windows Task Mgr.
#2-> The computer will NOT boot into ‘SafeMode’- I have tried this 5-6 times & she just boots up in normal mode.
#3-> I seem to have gotten it off my older machine & have run several SpySweeper/Ad-Aware/Avira Anti-Virus scans with clean results.
Can someone PLEASE help me- a this point I have no other ideas EXCEPT doing a format of my HD & reinstall Windows XP Pro.
I uninstalled Comodo using ‘Ad/Remove’ in Control Panel. Comodo does NOT show there when the list is populated.
Comodo file folder still shows when I Right Click ‘Start’->‘Explore’ - I have Right Clicked the folder-then selected ‘Delete’. I then get “Error Deleting File or Folder” with message->‘Cannot delete cmdagent.exe:Access denied. Make sure the disk is not full or white-protected and that the file is not in use.’
I have also tried going to TASK MGR.->Applications->End Task to close Comando & nothing happens. I have also gone to Processes tab in TASK MGR.& tried to “End Process”
Comodo is still in Start->All Programs. When I select the ‘Uninstall’ option there I get a Window with the heading in the blue bar at the top-
“C:\Program Files\Comodo\Firewall\cfponfg.exe” Below a “X” inside a red circle saying → “Windows cannot access the specified device,path,or file. You may not have the appropriate permission to access them”
I get the same message when I try to open “System Restore” with a different heading in the blue bar at the top of this window/message.
I am the only user of this machine & have always had Adminstrator access to it.
I cannot boot to’SafeMode’- I have triedto several times (both holding the F8 key & tapping it over & overtill machine boots up) & the computer boot up to normal mode.
