hi, today i downloaded the latest version of CIS and installed on my PC - windows XP SP2. After installation i checked the version of CIS and the virus definition. They are:
CIS : 3.5.57173.439
Virus Signature database version : 668
So i tried to update the vrus database…but the software returned an error asking me to check my internet connection. My connection to the internet is through a proxy…how to configure this detail in CIS?
the proxy settings are already configured in my internet explorer settings. Moreover when i click ‘Check for Updates’ in the Miscellaneous menu CIS asks for the proxy username and password and then connects to the net and gives a message like no updates available. When i try to Update Virus Database from the Antivirus menu CIS immediately gives a message asking me to check the connection…
Mmm your using proxy with authentication, I’m not sure if CIS av updates can handle that.
Is there any other way you could update ? temporarily disable the proxy etc ? or use a proxy that does not need authentication ?
I have split the post because it looks like we could have a problem here, maybe other users can confirm that it works or does not work with authenticated proxy servers.
Manual update is only possible if you have an other system where you can successfully update after that you can copy the c:\program files\comodo\comodo internet security\scanners\bases.cav file to your other computer and restart.
After that it should run the new version.
Comodo does not (at the moment) provide a separate download of the detection file.
(Could be a nice one on the wishlist
