When I am typing there is a possibility of a 2 or 3 second constipation as I type and nothing comes out on the display - and then it suddenly gushhes out of the keyboard buffer and all the characters suddenly appear as they should.
This happens when I am using Firefox and typing in any forum, even this one and right now.
This ALSO happens when Firefox is closed and I am simply typing in an Open Office document on my local drive, i.e. not using the Internet myself, but of course Comodo may be doing automatic signature updates etc., and Windows XP has sundry services that may be getting Time updates or reporting back to Bill Gates & Co.
There it goes again at 12:24.
On 1st Aug 2008 my ESET NOD32 licence expired and I decided to use Comodo.
I uninstalled ESET and also Comodo 3.5, and installed the latest Comodo C.I.S.
At that time the only irritation was the frequent junk updates to dberr.txt,
which rapidly lost all the information previously held on software installations etc.
Starting about 2 or maybe 3 months ago, I observed this annoying hesitation between keyboard and display.
It is still doing this with version 3.14.***
At 9:16 a.m. today the system completed booting up.
At 9:22 a.m. it added the usual line of junk to dberr.txt - since then nothing so 3.14 has almost cured it.
At 9:54, 11:25 ,11:55 and 12:26 the virus database has been updated
( It probably happened at 10:25 and 10:55 as well, but I was not looking between 10:00 and 11:30.)
SO At 12:24 there was keyboard to Display lag whilst the database was been merged and update completed at 12:26.
How about 10:11 when I also suffered keyboard to display lag.
I found this problem in version 3.13 even when I disabled all automatic A.V. signature updates
other than a scheduled scan once a day of one file to force a signature update.
I assume that 3.14 will do the same
Is this problem :-
Purely an anti-virus update attempt at 15 minute intervals ?
Even when updates are only allowed on schedule once a day ?
Could Defence+ have become far more sensitive to and distracted by background Windows O.S. activities ?
Could the Firewall have become more affected by stuff it sees on the Internet ?
N.B. A Netgear Router/Firewall protects me from most incoming internet junk.
I found no entries in the AV, Firewall, or Defence+ logs.
Are there any configuration changes that might give me relevant information in the logs.
Several days ago I total removed and purged Comodo 3.13, and then did a clean install without using old settings. The only change was to select “Proactive Security” configuration.
Yesterday I permitted the update to 3.14, and that changed me to “Proactive Security - Updated”,
and add a further new “Proactive Security” option.
