I have been trying to install Comodo firewall on my new Lenovo T500 Thinkpad and Vista 32bit Business version. I have been using CIS_Setup_3.5.54375.427_XP_Vista_x32.exe and CIS_Setup_3.5.55810.432_XP_Vista_x32.exe but only installing the firewall. After installing and restarting the laptop gets to the Vista Welcome page and hangs.
Here are my steps used to load Comodo after restoring Vista on the laptop:
Turned off UAC
Stopped windows firewall in services and disabled its startup
Ran CIS_Setup_3.5.55810.432_XP_Vista_x32.exe and installed the firewall only.
Restarted laptop as requested. The laptop gets to the Vista “Welcome” page and hangs!
If you go into safe mode Comodo icon is on the desktop and Comodo utility can be started. Comodo seems to be running.
To recover I have to reload Vista.
Could this be a problem with Vista, Comodo or the ThinkPad?
