This morning my Windows 8.1 machine updated to Comodo 10.0.16209
Now I can no longer open Git Bash, Cygwin any of my VM Virtual Boxes.
I rebooted to Safe Mode (minimal) and Git Bash and Cygwin work as normal.
I tried to uninstall Comodo with Revo Uninstaller, but I get the following message (before this message a dialogue box briefly flashes on the screen, but too quick to read):
COMODO Endpoint Security Setup Wizard ended prematurely.
COMODO Endpoint Security Setup Wizard ended prematurely because of an error. Your system has not been modified. To install this program at a later time, run Setup Wizard again. Click the Finish button to exit the Setup Wizard.
What to do?
Update 1: I’ve managed to restore the system to a point before the update. Now I have working computer again, I was hoping to turn off Comodo’s auto update, but when I open Firewall > Settings the UI is mostly blank
Update 2: I found after restoring the system that I was able to uninstall Comodo normally. Although I’ve been using it for many years and have recommended it to countless clients and friends in the past, I think it’s unlikely that I’ll be reinstalling it anytime soon - just lost too much time on messing around with this today…
