Odd behaviour of Add Remove Programs after Comodo installation

I’ve installed Comodo Firewall v3 and it nicely cleaned my registry subset under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall
What happened? Now I can list the programs that I have installed on my computer, but there are no buttons for modifying / uninstalling at all!

Does it have anything common with Comodo’s “Installation mode”?
Please help!

So you say you uninstalled it, but it still gives itself in the Ad/remove folder?


Install mode is for when you are installing something. Never mess with regedit unless you know what your doing. I never use Add/Remove under Windows. I always use Revo Uninstaller or CCleaner. I just brought up my list in Add/Remove programs and under the Comodo tab I can remove it.

If so, Try the registry cleaner made by Ragwing in attachement.

If this doesn’t work , you can also use the registry cleaner from CCleaner

Or use the full Advanced Windows Care

Post back if it worked out, and certainly when it didn’t

Hi again,
thanks for quick reply.
I will now try what you’ve suggested, just want to say that I cannot uninstall Comodo because I don’t see the Modify/Uninstall buttons in the Add/Remove Programs listing. These buttons are available just for applications that I have recently installed - after Comodo installation. All other applications are listed, but have no buttons.

IMO this is because something erased registry subset I mentioned before, and I thought it was some feature of Comodo - just to give you some extra security or something…

I will now try to make of use of the other uninstalling software - will see what happens.

I can’t have windows Add/Remove Programs back to work, but CCleaner’s uninstallation module seems to work for that!! (Advanced Windows Care lists the same as Windows’ Add/Remove Programs - I’ve just checked)

Thanks a lot for the help!

So your problem is fixed? (I think it is)

Another +1 help for Xan ;D


Not exactly, because I still can’t access regular Add/Remove Programs from Windows, but instead of this I can use CCleaner - and this, hopefuly, fixes the problem :slight_smile:

Thank you Xan!
