When I have disabled “comodo lanch pad” I noticed that:
a) the system loads/boots with some delay
b) probably interfears with the nvidia drivers of my video card. Monitor starts darker and becomes lighter after CPF is loaded. This also happens when CLP starts automatically but less time is needed to become lighter.
c) probably interfears with the drivers of my via network card. Needs much more time to load the local connection icon in systray. This also happens when CLP starts automatically but less time is needed.
When I check “Block all outgoing connections while booting” the network drivers won’t load and CPF initializes forever.
CPF uses more memory than it did with the beta. 15-17 mb
I’ve had a few BSODS “DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL” whilst creating rules “on the fly” with this version. Although I have seen one or two with previous versions. Ill see what files etc it relates to next time and check all my drivers are up to date.
Hi Steve, that type of error is usually from failing ram chip. When using certain apps, or just randomly, you may get this error and the BSOD. You may have a bad stick. Uninstall Comodo and run for a bit , do some normal usage tasks, see if it still shows up. My guess is though, it’s the ram. Perhaps why you see it with other versions as well. Higher usage apps will give you a BSOD. How much RAM do you have? Paging file size?
Thats very important. This happened while creating Network rules or Application rule or during an alert? Can you please check if you have memory dumps? Also what other security software do you have and OS ofcourse.
I hope this falls under this thread. When ever I log off my wifes account and not just simply switch to mine. After it’s completely logged off, and I can click and log back onto my account, the Windows Security Warning Icon is in System Tray, but then quickly goes away on it’s own. I can only assume it is because Security Center isn’t recognizing Comodo Firewall for a split second as I don’t have time to click on it to read it. This doesn’t happen though, by just switching from one account to the other. It only happens if I completely log off her account first and then click on mine. I didn’t try it in reverse however. I hope I made this clear, and it was okay to post it here. I think this is may be a true bug, and not a possible one. Other wise I’m very happy with CPF 184.108.40.206 at this time.
Since saturday I has 4 BSODs (2 today). I sent the minidumps to Comodo with the file send feature, but for now I uninstalled it.
The culprit is always cmdmon.sys (a Comodo driver). The 15th august I made a fresh XP installation after formatting, and had no BSOD before installing Comodo 220.127.116.11
Hope it will be corrected in the future. This firewall is very good.
Thank you for your advice. The Microsoft found sproradically an error in one of the test (memtest86 found nothing).
As the error was not lacated in one particulatr memory bank, I disabled the “turbo” setting in the BIOS and the errors disappeared. Spend a few hours to be shure. Happy to see Microsft made such a good test program.
Now Comodo is reinstalled. Hope no more BSODs.
But I find it stange that all the BSODs I got, were after Comodo installing and pointing to the Comodo driver.
I just got a bsod (IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL) a little while ago, which seems to involve cmdmon.sys. This is the first bsod I have experienced since installing CPF 18.104.22.168 last friday. I will try that memory test software from Microsoft as well, but I can send you the minidump if you would like to have a look at it.
Apart from that, I have come across a weird issue: The application monitor is not blocking Internet Explorer (iexplore.exe) with a popup when I try to open a local web server running on the loopback interface (127.0.0.1) and there are no existing application rules for IE. Other applications however, are blocked with a popup. The “Skip loopback TCP connections” setting is disabled, and I have also tried disabling “Do not show any alerts for the applications certified by COMODO”. But, if I also disable “Skip loopback UDP connections”, then I get a popup also for IE.
ok mine is not as bad as bsod but I’ve been frustrated for 24 hours and not sure what to do. After the update, my remote desktop over sshd stopped working and the rules still look ok. I’m lost. I even restored to my checkpoint 2 days ago and it’s still busted.
