I experienced limited internet access about 3-4 hours ago. I disconnected my modem and rebooted, and then went through the internet connection settings to see if I could find out what was causing the problem.
I noticed that the modem was being recognized by the computer a few times, and when net access worked it would work on and off. Also, if I connected to a radio station, music would change without any interruption while browsing capabilities would become disabled after about 5 minutes.
I decided to try running AVG and give the computer a virus scan, and when I went to update I noticed it couldn’t connect to update. That’s when my attention went to Comodo. I removed it from the startup list since I was not experiencing any problems until this one.
So, I wasn’t running Comodo, and as soon as I launched Comodo, programs I couldn’t connect to the internet with all of a sudden connected. Net connection seems to be back up to normal and AVG can now be updated.
What happened? Did Comodo reset something in Windows (XP), or is there something in Comodo which would limit internet use if it were removed from startup?
