I’m having a problem that may be related to Comodo.
I installed Comodo two weeks ago, and it’s awesome. But, I started noticing that I have a problem on my computer. I’m constantly being notified that an unknown program (with random numbers and letters in the name) “has modified the memory of iexplorer.exe in memory” (and does the same thing to Firefox too… it depends on which browser I’m using). Comodo tells me that this is likely a virus or worm or spyware.
So, I went to Housecall to do an online scan, which I usually do every few weeks. I ran the scan and… suddenly about 20 minutes into the scan, IExplorer just closed down with no messages of any sort. I looked at the Firewall (which I hadn’t exited before running the scan), and it had about a dozen messages about blocking an attacker that had tried to scan ports.
Okay, so I shut down the firewall (cmdagent.exe was still running, because I can’t figure out how to shut that down), and ran the scan again. Again, IExplorer simply vanished about 20 minutes into the scan. I tried Firefox. Instead of just shutting down, Firefox crashed, also about 20 minutes into the scan.
I guess the firewall is preventing Housecall from running. Or maybe it’s not the firewall’s fault and the virus is doing this. I don’t know. I just know that I ran Housecall about a week before installing Comodo, and it ran just fine.
I really need to be able to run Housecall. Is there a way to completely disable Comodo for a while, without uninstalling it? I looked all over but I can’t figure it out. It even runs when I’m in Safe Mode.
