I have been trying since November to install CPF on my W2K Pro desktop, with no success. After the download is complete, I get a message to uninstall any 3rd party firewalls, and click OK. When I click OK, nothing happens, the install apparently shuts down. It does not matter whether I try to open the download from the download box, or save to file and open from that. I eventually gave up and downloaded Zone Alarm.
That worked for about a month before signature updates in my Kaspersky 6.0 (antivirus only) created conflicts with Zone Alarm, that prevented me from connecting to the internet. According to Kaspersky, they have conflicts with ZoneAlarm, but not Comodo, so I am back to sqaure 1.
Previously contacted this forum with no results
Scanned with multiple antivrus scanners from websites
Gone through extensive troubleshooting from Major Geeks to find no viruses
Downloaded utilities from Trend to completely wipe out traces of their products that were leftover from the uninstall of their products
Done a Regedit>find> PC-Cillin to find all of the registry keys that their uninstall utility did not clean out, and then set up a PsExec batch file to delete the keys that regedit could not
Tried to install from safe mode
Pulled out much of my hair
Cussed alot… ALOT
One nice thing to add to the install wizard would be some diagnostics that inform as to what troubles caused the install to head south.
In the meantime, does anyone have a clue as to what is going on???
