Same scenario, same disastrous results PLUS I can’t get XP to boot into Safe Mode to disable the AV, etc.
Hitting F8 at boot doesn’t work. I have a wireless keyboard; could that be the reason? (I can’t get my hands on a wired keyboard until tomorrow…)
Update on <<Same scenario, same disastrous results PLUS I can’t get XP to boot into Safe Mode… I have a wireless keyboard; could that be the reason?..>>
I got around the functionless F8 issue by logging in and immediately doing the following as fast as possible before CIS loaded in the task bar: click Start button, click Run…, type “msconfig”, click OK, click BOOT.INI tab, check /SAFEBOOT, click OK.
XP loaded in Safe Mode, disabled all but Firewall, rebooted normally.
Now: What’s best/easiest way to downgrade to previous config as stated by Surfinusa? Do I just run the installer for the previous version, 3.12.111745.560? (Just want to be sure I take an informed step backwards, eh.)
same thing here
did update >restart >system freeze
reset and went in safe mode to disable cis from running at startup, using msconfig
turned on windows firewall and restarted
i can now use the pc (to type this) but windows security center says comodo antivirus is running
and cmdagent.exe is using alot of memory
i started cis again and it says its being updated? i wonder if it just freezes while its downloading the virus database?
hope they fix this soon as i am using windows firewall with no anti virus at the moment
Boot into safe mode with networking, leave for at least one hour. My computer was usable in this mode.
Boot into normal mode, leave for at least 1 hour, during which AV database tries to update. Then it does, then all is OK. (On v 2978 now). (Computer unusable during this period - too slow).
Hope this might help until there is furthewr guidance.
Your Operating System & version (eg XP SP3): XP SP3
Other Security and Utility Software Installed (eg Norton Internet Security 2009): Comodo - CIS, CVE, CIV, CLP, Easy VPN; Other- Filezilla, Wallwatcher, Sony Ericsson PC software, Actual Window Manager, Routerstats, Revo, Process Explorer, Copernic Desktop,
Email client & version (eg Outlook 2003): Outlook 2003
Does anyone know if there’s an acknowlegement/fix pending for CIS 3.13.*.572?
Rather than going thru the effort of downgrading to the previous version, I’m still running *.572 with all disabled except firewall pending a fix. S’not a problem when I’m online, but I prefer not to risk having family members going online with AV, Defense+, etc. disabled. I’ll downgrade if need be, but aaarghh…
P.S. Thanks dexotaku for the info on keyboard “legacy/USB support”. Thanks Surfinusa for your help.
Same prob here with XP SP3 bricked three of my machines, not wanting to look a gift horse in the mouth as I really appreciate the effort and have had a long time of free Firewall & AV from Comodo which I still rate against paid for equivelents but thats twice now my machines have been rendered useless with Comodo products. I suffered the Reg cleaner page file problems and now this.
