For those who are using Windows XP and upgraded to CIS from an earlier version of CAV
or a CIS and now AV signatures won’t update.
Download attached zip file Save to Desktop
Rename file from Comodo_AV_update_fix_XP.
Click yes i know changing a file extension might make it not work.
Right click on file and select Merge.
Click Yes I am sure I want to add files to the registry.
Reboot PC To use the new settings.
This file will correct the relevant registry entries for you.
The MD5 f480f87a551dc48e9b2f809a302e88d8 Comodo_AV_update_fix_XP.zip
YMMV but it will do no harm, and if you still can’t update AV you have some other issues.

Sorry jake I left out the parts about shutdown CIS and reboot.
I edited my post.
It’s worth another shot for you.
If the registry stuff was your problem.

I get an error message that the file is invalid or corrupt.
You aren’t trying to unzip it are you?

Thank’s Bad Frogger! Good work… I will make a sticky for my post here and attach your registry fix, I changed “downloads” to “download”
I get an error while trying to open it to, Bad Frogger. I think you need to check it, It’s a ZIP file and I didn’t extract it, Just renamed it but no go.
The Md5 checks.
I downloaded it, renamed it, merged it.
Deleted the copy from the post, upped it fresh, double checked MD5 again.
It’s all working as advertised from my end.
I can’t explain the failure, maybe a typo, white space.
Brainstorm… you said open it/
You can’t open it, you can only right click it and merge to registry.
If you want to “open it” to see the contents rename to Comodo_AV_update_fix_XP.txt
All that’s there are those registry entries from the previous posts, corrected and in a one shot
merge so people don’t have to go in and change each entry separately.
That gets freaky dangerous to mess in there for the less experienced.
