Version Number Mismatch

According to the Comodo Firewall GUI, I’m running version 5.10. But Windows 7 thinks it’s version 5.5 according to the program list under Programs & Features. My auto-update facility is reading the Windows version and telling me I should update Comodo to version 5.10…

Is there a way to get the correct version number registered with Windows 7, short of uninstalling and reinstalling?

I think this is a registry hack, please have a look at


Search there for the old 5.5 version number and if the folder contains the ‘Display name = Comodo Internet Security’ you have the right folder.
Change the ‘DisplayVersion’ to the new 5.10.x and your good to go.

OK, thanks for that.

I’ve hacked around in the registry before, so I’ll give it a try.

ETA: well I replaced it in several places, and it seems to be OK now. I took a backup, just in case :wink:

Good to hear :-TU
