Very Angry with COMODO

I downloaded and installed COMODO Firewall v 3.10
Installed all the goodies with it, “Bio Clean” “Anti-Virus” etc…
Now I can not do anything on my computer.

cmdagent.exe is using all my resource.
I can not “End Process” I can not uninstall this nightmare at all.

It takes hours just to get the computer to function
it took two hours to register and post this in your forum.

And you want me to spend another two hours to read your
entirte forum to see if the subject has already been posted?

I am furious.
This is soooo wrong.
You have ruined my week,
and I have a dead line I wont meet,
which means I could loose $2000

I want the whole mess off of my computer now.
What kind of software doesn’t give you an “uninstall” option?
I have a good mind to make a very creative Youtube Video
sharing my COMODO nightmare with the world.

Get COMODO off my computer …and (you) will help COMODO


Ummm—add/remove programs?----just a thought

Hello Foggy, I can understand your frustration - but If you want help you’ll have to stop coming across as aggressive.


Do you have another security package that could be conflicting with comodo?

Also… comodo → Misc → Diagnostics. This should search for common problems and attempt to repair comodo.

i have the uninstall menu ???

yah, probably this

I have had instant success on instalation and I have had situations like yours, Foggy , where Comodo has taken me for a spin around the block while I had to find the reason everything locked up on install.
If your going to be angry , Aim your frustrations at the pompas arrogant designers of windows operating system that make the user have to examine everything under a microscope in the controll panel under “internet options” . Go to the advanced tab on the far right under internet options and scroll down about two thirds off the way untill you find the sentance that reads "allow software to run on this computer even if the signature is invalid and above that another sentance reads"allow active content to run files on this computer. Check both of those boxes and go to controll panel again and go to windows firewall then click on the exceptions tab then click on add program located just below the white area.
Then use the brows button if you know where you have put Comodo you should be able to locate it in your files. In My Computer / program files/ Comodo / Once you are finished with the brows button and have chosen Comodo as the program to add to your exceptions tab then the last step is to go back to the General tab on the firewall icon in controll panel and turn off your firewall temporaraly while you activate setup with Comodo. Once Comodo has initiallized and has learned a thing or two about yiur system then feel free to turn your Windows firewall back on and you will have Smooooth Sailing. You have The Knack of it now baby.

There IS NO option to uninstall it anywhere on my computer.
I thought I made that clear enough.

Angery at who?
Trust me the Dog doesn’t even want to be near me now.
Is there any way to just kill cdmagent.exe permanently?
I can’t do anything until it is stopped, please just get this
off my computer, PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD!,

I tried that other stuff you suggested too, it didnt work.
I just want to permanently kill cdmagent.exe, and then
perform the rest of the abortion on piece at a time,
before the rest of a crew find out it’s on board
and someone runs to arm the self destruct

Unfortunately, it sounds like, for what ever reason, your installation didn’t complete successfully. you could try the following:

run cfpconfg.exe -u which you can find in the Program Files/COMODO/COMODO Internet Security. There’s an option to uninstall. If that fails, then it’s a question of removing things manually, which is not ideal. The guide below is for use after running the uninstaller, but it will point you in the right direction to find things that need to be removed.

Uninstall CIS and reboot. Then run Comodo System Cleaner to get rid off registry keys.

Then delete the Comodo folders under Program Files, Program Files\Common Files, C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\ .
For Vista/Win7
Users%username%\appdata\local, Users%username%\appdata\roaming\ and \Users%username%\appdata\local\virtual store

To be even more thorough open Device Manager and set it to show hidden devices under menu option View. Then see if there are Comodo driver(s) left in non Plug and Play drivers. If so select the driver → click right → uninstall and reboot.

Now delete the following:
C:\boot.ini.comodofirewall (this file may not exist).
WARNING: Do not mistakenly remove the original “boot.ini”.

*Note: It may not be possible to remove these “LEGACY” keys. If you cannot delete them, leave them in the registry. However, I have subsequently found that you MAY be able to remove these keys in Safe Mode by using a third-party registry tool. To permanently remove them may also require modifying the Permissions for each key. See:;msg119226#msg119226

Ok, trying that now.
Comodo has a block application option as part of it’s defenses
and so I used it to block it’s own application, as a temp fix and
computer is running faster, but I need to uninstall it all and then
maybe find a better source for Comodo Download and try again.

…Ok just tried to run it several ways but it would not run.
unless it runs in the background somewhere?

maybe you should start your Computer in Safe mode.
On boot up just click F8, so you get the boot screen, then start the computer in safe mode. Now CIS doesn’t start. Now you should be able to remove it. Look under Software, maybe there you can uninstall it. Otherwise you have to manually uninstall it. Like Quill described it.
You should do all of this things in Safe mode. After uninstalling restart at now your computer should work fine as before.
