online upgrade fail

The firewall can not upgrade to the latest, being blocked at about 10 percent of the updating process. And an error message is always shown as “. : Error 0x80072ee2”. The failure files are different but same error code.
what should I do?

Hello harrison,

Could you go to start > programs > acc > command prompt
type in
del /f /s /q %temp% < Hit enter after %temp% (Restart and do the command againn)

then try to update…

Does this help?


Hello Jake,
I did the deletion of the temporary files and restart my computer and did it again. The updating failed again.
Any other solution?

You can try booting in safe mode, and then removing the temp files by the above command and as well removing the temp folder in %systemroot% "The command would be ‘cd %systemroot% then rd /s temp’ "

OR you can uninstall and install a fresh from

To uninstall
Export your configuration CIS > more > manage my configurations > Select “Active” Click Export; Uninstall
Then restart - Recommend running this
then downloading a fresh copy of CIS from then install, once installed import your configuration…

Hope this helps;

PS I’ am searching the forums atm and will PM a dev to take a look in this issue;


I have the same error, repeatedly at about 9% of the upgrade process. Same error code as above, but the file involved is always the same: cavscan.exe

I’ve tried deleting the temp files and rebooting as Jake advises - doesn’t help. I object to having to unistall and reinstall.

Comodo 5.0.163652.1142. XP SP3 32-bit with all Microsoft updates applied. MS Security Essentials virus scanner.

I have had the same problem for several months, and the COMODO program nagging me every single day to update, but when I do it hangs after ~1% and then I get the same error (cfp.exe : Error 0x80072ee2).

About 2 weeks ago I uninstalled COMODO and reinstalled with the latest version (5.0.163652.1142). Then it kept quiet for about a week, but now it has started nagging me about updating again, but when I try I still get that same cfp.exe : error 0x80072ee2 message… :frowning:

I tried disabling COMODO firewall and Defense+, but that didn’t help, it still hangs. All other self updating programs such as Windows Update and Avast function without any problem.

I run Win 7 Ultimate x64, 4 Gb RAM, 500 Gb Hd. I use the latest Firefox browser (3.6.13) and Avast for antivirus.
