I’m running WinXP SP3 and I downloaded the CIS v5 installer from the forum announcement page. Installation failed as it was unable to remove v4 (some file not found). Then I let v4 do the update as it signalled an available update.
Afterwards, Comodo v5 seems to be running but the GUI interface is messed up:
OK problem solved. After renaming all *.theme files, Comodo crashed on start and left me unprotected (at least it looks like that).
I figured out that it needs at least one *.theme file. Re-renamed cfp.theme and voilà - everything works.
But isn’t that a security risk, if one only has to delete the skin file and on the next reboot CFP crashes??
I thought i was the only one with a messed up GUI interface but i didnt have use a different skin for it
I use vista 32 with nod32
i tried it through the update installer and after reboot i got the messed up GUI interface too
tried to uninstall and got an error from c:windows\install\cis_setup but it was not even there but it uninstalled cis. then i tried a clean install but got that error again. so i couldnt install cis 5 so restored my comp with norton ghost.
After that i uninstalled cis 4 without any errors reboot my comp then tried to install cis 5 again everything seems to went well but after reboot i still got the messed up GUI interface so i restored my again with norton ghost.
But maybe it could be the bug to rename the theme can anyone else confirm this.
Hi guys, when I allowed the ‘Update’ of version 5 over 4, I was presented with the outline of the CIS program pane, with vacant area within. (Attachment shows the pane in a word.doc) Three (3) reboots did not solve the problem, so I downloaded the current version of CIS from the website and ran it (without issue). Everything worked well following this action. In version 4 I had used a ‘blue’ colour theme and seem to recall downloading it from a link in the Comodo forums. Whilst I am unsure, I think it was a ‘recommended’ colour theme. Great program, this was a nuisance, not a disaster. Perhaps it might be worth having an area on the website, or in the program to facilitate known colour themes?

WHY WE ASK YOU TO FOLLOW THESE GUIDELINES
Bugs/issues can be impossible or very time consuming to fix if developers don’t have enough information to reproduce them. Since CIS is free, development time is limited. So if you want your issue fixed, please use the format below to describe it.
To avoid clutter, issues not described in the format below your post will not be moved to the ‘moderator verified’ issues topic. This means that the developers may not look at it.
I had never use the themes before and still got The messed up GUI interface today i tried again but i put the themes in v4 before i did the update i did select a theme before i did the update to v5 after the update to v5 i reboot the comp and it worked with the theme i selected but when i tried to put on the default theme from cis i got The messed up GUI interface again and tried everything whats above but that didnt work so restored my comp back with NG again after that i did the whole story once again and it works now with all the non standard theme but not the default theme from commodo isnt that weird???
I never changed themes in version 4 (didn’t know you could) so when I upgraded, presumably V4 would have been using the default theme.
It worked fine on my laptop.
I even tried uninstalling V4 and doin V5 as a new install but still the same problem.
