There are incompatibilities and/or blocks between Comodo Firewall with the installation of SP1 for Windows 7 64 Bit?
I think so. I recently installed Win7 x64 on my computer (1-2 weeks ago).
As far as I remember COMODO CIS was running fine.
Now I updated Win7 to SP1 and the anti virus component cannot be started anymore.
It always says it’s not ready.
I’m using CIS 5.3.181415.1237
Does reinstalling CIS help here?
Unfortunately not, but I haven’t tried uninstalling with cleaning the registry (with Revo uninstaller or sth like that). I will try this aswell later on today.
I run Win7 Pro x64 SP1 (build 7601) and installed CIS yesterday. As far as I am able to tell at this time, it is functioning as designed.
I know that does not necessarily help but what I am trying to say is that it seems that there are no universal issues between CIS and SP1. I would also note that I have installed all of the latest Win7 SP1 updates/patches so I would not imagine that an issue exists with one of those.
It may not be related but, as you, I did have an issue with starting the AV component but that was due to the fact that I did not rename the manually downloaded definitions file properly (it downloaded as BASE_END_USER_v8332.cav and I copied it into the subdirectory not realizing that the name had to be changed to <bases.cav>).
Hope this helps to at least rule out an SP1 related issue.
