Taskbar and CFW icon

Siince its last update the CFW icon does not show in the taskbar unless I click on Comodo in the list of programs in the start menu.

Then every time I log on I have to do the same again in order to show the icon in the taskbar

Could be that the registry entry for starting cis is missing. You should have an entry in HKLM\Software\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run. If it is missing, and you feel comfortable with editing the registry, simply add the following entry

COMODO Internet Security C:\Program Files\COMODO\COMODO Internet Security\cfp.exe\ -h

Alternatively, you could re-install CIS.

Editing the registry can be risky.


In the situation where you don’t see the icon do you see cfp.exe in the Processes list of Task Manager?

When cfp.exe is running read this article: How To: Fix Missing System Tray Icons at Windows XP startup .
