Using Comodo Firewall 8 and I seem to have an invisible prompt. Showed up earlier, nothing in logs, I rebooted, then it seems to have showed up again. See screenshot, there in the lower right corner of the screen, can just see the corner of the Comodo window. Can pick it up and move it, but that corner is the only thing that moves, no rest of the window showing up, and it won’t go away.
What gives and what do I do with it?
Mod edit: Added merged to the topic title, Captainsticks.
It just recently showed up, within the last hour and it’s really annoying. It first showed up as if it was from the Comodo message center and it refuses to go away. I can move it around, but it’s always on top and in my way. How do I get rid of this? Thanks.
I probably have not been observant enough previously but I have noticed a small item that appears in the bottom right hand corner of my desktop. It takes a few minutes before it appears. It is right in the corner so the complete item cannot be seen but it looks like a light coloured letter ‘C’ on a dark background. I am posting in this forum because it seems it might be part of a Comodo image - it looks identical to the the first part of the initial letter ‘C’ in ‘Comodo’ in the main Comodo desktop menu that I have positioned top right of my desktop but the second part of the letter is lost as it is off the screen edge.
I would like to be reassured that this item is normal and does not represent anything untoward. As I said, I may have not been very observant in the past so it may have been appearing from ages ago but as it is rather small, it is easily missed.
The item does not respond to mouse clicks left or right.
Yes, that show messages box is checked, and I guess it may be such a message, since nothing shows up in logs otherwise. Still didn’t reappear after turning it off and then back on that time in my case (computer was left on, as it always is).
And in my case the first time it appeared was shortly after midnight, around 12:05 or so, or at least that’s when I noticed it, so joke or not it does seem like something triggered by the date.
I have listed binary updates at 12:28 and 1:41 AM. 12:28 was some 1-2 min after it showed up the 2nd time, ~15 min after the first reboot, at 1:41 I hadn’t even been at the computer in some 40 min. May it be that this 1:41 update cleared away that message? (Don’t exactly care to reboot again and check if I don’t have to.)
My odd rectangle disappeared when I clicked on the icon that notified me that a Windows Update was available.
However, I do not have any advice for the person on another site who, upon being informed that a specific feature is not available in an Android app, then asked how he could enable that feature. That my method of removing the rectangle worked for me is not intended as a guarantee that it will work for you, as it may have been a specific feature available only to me.
Thank you Dennis2. The link to the thread you provided at least gave some reassurance in that I am not alone regarding the issue and that this is a new problem. Sorry if I posted in the wrong place - I’ll keep an eye on the other thread but so far this mystery seems unresolved. Hopefully Comodo will come up with an explanation and a solution.
