Slow Starup

Running version 3.0.18 on XP 2.
PC takes an additional 1 minute to boot after Comodo Firewall Pro version 3 install. This problem was not present in version 2.4. Any help available on this? Otherwise v3 is working well


Do you have Terminal Services switched off on your system? If so, set it to “manual” or “automatic” to see whether it makes any difference.

Defrag your boot files. I use TuneXP. BTW one minute isn’t anything to complain about. Hell Zone Alarm will add a good 2-3 minutes. You can also clean out your prefetch folder to rebuild your layout.ini files. Your first boot will be really slow but after that it will be fine.

Terminal is disabled. Boot Defrag with Diskeeper. No problem with prefetch.

I have the same problem on my Toshiba laptop. My terminal service is set to manual. I also have a Dell desktop which works fine and does not have that problem. The only difference I can see is my laptop has 3 times as many utilities that loads up at startup.


My startup problem was solved with version Comodo Firewall Pro update.

There is a difference between slow start up and the tray icon loading last. The tray icon has always loaded last for me but I only have 3 tray icons. Avira,Logitech G15 Gaming Keyboard and Comodo. My pc from the minute I power it on boots up rather quickly then when I am at my desktop the and Avira and Logitech are loaded about 10 secs later Comodo tray icon loads. Doesn’t bother me the least bit.
