Initial update of comodo antivirus is sick

I installed comodo Internet Security a few days ago

I takes so much time to update the antivirus :-TD

When I NOW checked the active connection list under comodo firewall, cmdagent.exe has already downloaded 82.0 MB (bytes in)


Edit by EricJH: changed the all caps title to something that doesn’t “shout”

105 MB is the size of the initial update.

I unistalled Comodo Antivirus and I am using Avira


try to make the initial updates small

Its currently happening, its shrinking by the hour, started the last few days.

Take it you don’t have much patience :-TD :o 88)

Found this thread via google because I was concerned with the size of this update myself…

While I am patient, I am wondering if there is resume functionality in the updater? For such an update, if I were to have 60mb downloaded and for some reason lose my connection, will it resume from where it left off when I reconnect and restart the updater?

Not sure if this is the right place to post such a question; if it’s not, feel free to direct me to the proper place.
Thanks in advance!

No it wont resume… it has to start again.

You can try a download manager to download this file: (note this is for version 3.13 only)

Many thanks for that link! :smiley:

If I may ask, how did you find that link? My first thought on this issue was to search the site for a manual database update file, but I was unable to find it. ???

Also, I know this is the AV help area, but I’m guessing the lack of resume also applies to the firewall updater? If so, it would be helpful if there were a way to manually download and install that update as well. :o

Again, many thanks! :slight_smile:
