I reformatted my computer because I upgraded my motherboard/cpu and ran the installer for Comodo Firewall before I had the network working and prior to any Winxp updates (service packs, .net frameworks, etc). The installer completed, but files were reported missing on restart and the firewall failed to open. I tried to uninstall the firewall, but that also failed leaving the system with registry problems and starting issues as well as an IP address that didn’t want to refresh. I tried to fix it for 10 minutes before I used fix below.
Fix: reformat computer and install a different firewall.
We would very much appreciate it if you would edit your first post to create an issue report in line with the bug forum guidelines and format here. You can copy and paste the format from this topic.
To understand the reasons why we ask you to follow these guidelines please see below.
WHY WE ASK YOU TO FOLLOW THESE GUIDELINES
Bugs/issues can be impossible or very time consuming to fix if developers don’t have enough information to reproduce them. Since CIS is free, development time is limited. So if you want your issue fixed, please use the format below to describe it.
To avoid clutter, issues not described in the format below your post will not be moved to the ‘moderator verified’ issues topic. This means that the developers may not look at it.
Unfortunately we do need this issue to be reported in the full right format, and with all the information we have asked for, if we are to forward it to verified issues.
For the moment I am going to move it to the Orphaned/Resolved child board. If you do edit your post to create a complete issue report in standard format, and PM an active mod, we will of course consider moving it to verified reports.
The devs only look at the Orphaned/Resolved board if they have time, so please do edit the post and PM an active mod if you want it fixed.
