I updated my Comodo firewall from (don’t know) ver to 10.0.1.6209 on my windows 7 32bit system yesterday and facing weird bugs, I hear alerts with no popups (I do get popups too), desktop shortcut reappear, today windows aero is disabled, I am not sure what is causing all this but I want to downgrade.
I have few questions.
Is there a log that can tell me what was the previous version, I don’t want to guess based on last release history.
Where can I find the file to download that previous version instead of downloading very old installer that would want to update to 6209 again.
Is there a way to downgrade instead of uninstall and reinstall
P.S. update didn’t go smooth, it got stuck but once I restarted PC and did diagnose it came fine
We are sorry for the trouble caused. There is no option to downgrade from new version to older version.
We will suggest you wait as we are going to fix all issues and new fix release will be done very soon.
There would be no way to downgrade to a different version, just update. You would have to uninstall and install the version you want. Most Effective Way to Reinstall/Update CIS to Avoid/Fix ProblemsComodo Forum
Thanks. Let me summarize as the self-appointed internet historian.
Comodo would rather that you download and old version from some random ■■■ site, than host those version themselves.
There are TEN YEAR OLD THREADS still the same issue, still unresolved.
What kind of corporate insanity is this? Is there ever a time where someone working at Comodo says, “hey! shouldn’t we fix our chit? I mean how can anyone trust us, when we’ve ten year old issues with our core product we still have not resolved”
Let’s hope the real reason is that the NSA has paid Comodo large sums of cash to not fix things, because otherwise it’s just out right incompetence.
I would recommend Filehorse v. 8.2 I downloaded both but the Filepuma 8.4 version was only 166 mb. Filehorse 8.2 was 212 mb. I wish someone had version 9 since that one worked really well for me but I can do with 8.2 I think I might have uninstalled version 10 wrong because I just renamed and deleted the Comodo folder because I could not access Add/Remove Programs and then used Revo uninstaller to clear the Comodo registry entries (advanced mode.) Will installing 8.2 fix things and get me my internet back? Right now I can only access the internet from Safe Mode with Networking (that’s how I’m posting) and have System Restore turned off. I have XP SP3 Home. Thanks!
File size has nothing to do with anything. There could be a issue with renaming and deleting the folder. There are other folders that are hidden. The INTERNET connection could be corrupt not using a uninstaller. It is hard to say if your connection would come back with installing and if it will install.
It would not uninstall the normal way because add/remove programs could not be accessed and would not let me uninstall in safe mode. I did use Revo to remove all traces of the program from the registry- would that not be enough? I also checked the network connection to make sure Comodo is not “attached” to it.
I see others have deleted the folder directly to get their internet access back. I unhid all my hidden folders- if there are any additional things I need to delete I can easily delete them manually- just let me know of anything I might have missed. The registry is now clear so that can’t be a problem. I already manually deleted the comodo .sys files from the drivers folder. Like I said I don’t allow for any hidden folders or files so that won’t be a problem.
Thanks, what microsoft utilities are you referring to? Also, what version should I install now and should I install from Safe Mode with Networking, Safe Mode, or normal mode now that my internet connection works again?
Alright I did all that and then installed version 8.2 and then updated the virus database and unchecked the option to automatically download updates but kept the program update notifications checked for every 7 days. I didn’t install Geekbuddy this time.
