I am new to this forum, and the reason I found Comodo is that I was in the process to update my home server HW and also reinstalling the server. As I am running W2k Server on the machine, there is no other good free antivirus solution to use, so I thought I would give Comodo a try.
First of all, I tried to install Comodo on a client PC running standard W2k, but I experienced the “system freeze” behaviour reported in some threads on this forum. The system is not usable at all but it is running. I thought it could be due to leftovers from Norton AV causing the behaviour, but I couldn’t make it work so Comodo is uninstalled again.
Then, I installed Comodo on my fresh W2k Server installation, but I experienced the same behaviour on this machine.
Am I doing something wrong or is there a solution?
If your system constantly freezes with the old beta, please follow these steps to uninstall it and install the latest available version:
Reboot your system in the safe mode.
Right-click “My Computer” and select “Manage”. Choose “Computer Management->Services and Application->Services” item in the left-side tree.
Find “Comodo Anti-Virus and Anti-Spyware Service” in the list and double-click it. Select “Disabled” in the “Startup type” combo. This will prevent On-Access service from being started on the next bootup.
Restart your PC in a normal mode and uninstall CAVS.
Install the latest version of CAVS available for download.
