HPGuru HOST File blocking Comodo Activations

Hi Folks,

I got one of the activation errors -2146697211, turns out that HPGuru’s HOST file (as of Friday) is blocking some of the Comodo addresses, so activating fails. Thought I’ve give a heads up to anyone using a HOST file, to make sure Comodo is not on the no-no list. Hopefully this will help someone and for once I didn’t need help ;D
Thanks Comodo for making the firewall. (L)



Thanks for posting this, it will be useful for helping others with the problem. :wink:

Welcome to Comodo and the forums,

Can someone pls get in touch with these HPGuru guys and ask them to correct their db and remove comodo entry pls.


Hi Melih,

Sorry I can’t help more on the HPGURU problem, I don’t use it. I use MVPS, but forgot to set the auto-update in Hostman to retrieve it and ended up with HPGURU’s instead.

I hope the tip I posted helped some people with their problems.
I checked out HPGURU’s forums and they’ve had Comodo Group in the HOSTS file since as far back as October 2005 -hope this link is alright to post here- http://www.hosts-file.net/phpbb2/viewtopic.php?t=232&highlight=comodo , as you can see this question was never answered.


I’ve got an accont pending with them and will raise it as soon as I can log in.
