XP-PRO/SP3 with all the updates.
I just downloaded the V3 installer and ran it. At the screen where it suggests a destination folder and allows you to change it via the “Browse” button, I select “Browse” and the installer immediately terminates. XP displays an error report that references the IMAGEHLP.DLL, which is a MSoft dll resident in system32 folder.
I’m reluctant to continue with the installation (by for example not selecting “Browse”) in case of further problems.
Event ID 1000
Faulting application cfp_setup_22.214.171.1248_xp_vista_x32.exe, version 126.96.36.199, faulting module imagehlp.dll, version 5.1.2600.5512, fault address 0x000041ec.
I’ll pass, because, yes, skipping the “Browse” part did allow the installer to continue and install the f/w, but I hated the result so much, and it ■■■■■■■ up my startup config so much, that I immediately uninstalled it.
Q: do you use MS standard xp themes or do you use some unofficial xp theme?
A: No, ordinary XP-PRO/SP3.
Q: Can you elaborate more. Comodo doesn’t mess with “msconfig”.
A: Installed Comodo f/w and rebooted as requested. On startup my nVidia graphics drivers did not start up, resulting in my desktop being ■■■■■■■ up. My Logitek camera s/w kicked in and started a re-install, requesting the installation CD and dumping a series of icons onto my desktop. I was faced with an endless series of requests, from Comodo, to confirm programs as good/bad. Various other effects that I attributed to the presence of Comodo. I eventually surrendered, uninstalled Comodo and rolled back via a System Restore point.
I’m aware that with persistence I might overcome these problems, I’m not a computer newbie, I’ve been in the business for 40 years. I just want a simple f/w that monitors outgoing traffic and permits me to allow or dis-allow it. I don’t care about incoming threats as I have a very robust hardware f/w in my 3-Com router. I also don’t care about monitoring s/w as I have Process Guard and Comodo insists I remove it before installing. I also have a good A/V and Anti-Spyware so, again, I don’t need all the capability that Comodo offers.
So, question… can Comodo be configured at install as a simple shield for outgoing calls ?
