i installed csc 2 yesterday. today when i started the system it started too slow and finally a window appeared virtual memory too low. i did few reboots and tried increasing the pagefile but nothing solved the prob. then i uninstalled csc 2 and restarted the system and everything is back to normal.
First of all, tell us exactly the version of CSC used on your system so we can start by running tests on that specific build.
You said that today your system started slow and that CSC was installed yesterday. Between these time periods, have you done some operations in CSC that worth mentioning? like performing a clean in some module(s) or using certain options. Please post the CRC, CDC and CPC logs here so we can analyze them (logs are found in Program Files\COMODO\COMODO System Cleaner).
Tell us the operating system in question.
And because the problem involves issues on low virtual memory, we could really use a list of other applications you have installed on your system.
I also had the same problem. I un-installed CSC V1 then downloaded and install CSC V2. I did not have a memory problem until I ran a registry cleaner. It identified 75 entries, I continued with the delete, creating a restore point and registry backup. The deletion completed successfully and I restarted my PC. After the re-boot, services.exe continued to eat memory. Over 1G before I decided to restart again. Same thing occurred after the second re-boot so I restored the registry from the CSC backup and performed another re-boot. And again services.exe eating away at memory. I then un-installed CSC V2 restarted my PC and everything is back to normal.
Windows XP media Center SP3
Security is CIS the latest
It did not work for me. I re-installed CSC V2 did the updates to V2.xxxxx.5 can’t remember the whole release but do remember it ended with a 5. It started sucking memory right from the start without even opening up the application. Went into task manager and services.exe was just eating away at memory. un-installed it and everything was normal.
I got the same issue with services.exe which is caused by CSC 2, uninstalling it completely solves the problem. In CSC I only use registry cleaner with no registry protection feature.
I had this issue in beta 1 as well, but I thought that it might be caused by bad installation or something like that. Now I see that lots of people have exactly the same issue with CSC. IMHO it should be added to known issues instead of saying it’s fixed. You may cripple some people systems or even cause them to lost some valuable data 88). Thankfully, it didn’t happen to me.
OS: Windows XP Pro SP3 + online updates
Stack of the thread causing problems in services.exe process.
Is anyone going to take a look at this. I’m not the only one running into this problem and in my opinion it’s being ignored. Never had this problem running CSC V1. If not, there’s other free products out there that will do the same work. eg. ASC, CCleaner…
I think it’s time I tacked my own entry here…
I’m experiencing some slowdowns with this installed as well.
My personal Vista machine is fine, but with the 2.0+ public release versions of CSC, my clients’ XP based computers have been experiencing the notorious services.exe loop (not so much with a recent update…but it seems it may have come back according to my customer).
May have the answer to your problem. I had the same problem so uninstalled CSC V2.0, restarted Win XP SP3 and services.exe was still going berserk. Tracked it down to the fact that CSC Uninstall had not removed CFRPD.sys from C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers.
Manually deleted the file, restarted and all working hunky dory again.
Now running V2.0.110158.6 and this version looks to be okay
