This happens SOMETIMES (not very often).
USUALLY about minute after I log into account when computer is started.
Icon is visible in tray.
SOMETIMES changing firewall mode between “Safe Mode” and “Block All” fixes it.
But SOMETIMES problem persists even after computer is restarted couple of times in row.
After the problem, I reinstalled CFW, so I can’t take a screenshot.
Is there a solution to reactivate CFW in this situation?
As it seems that I am not the only one, is it possible that when CIS/CFW is launched, CIS/CFW will impose itself as AV/FW as it does when it is installed?
I don’t understand why sometimes (rarely) it happens that the Windows protection system does not recognize Comodo immediately or does not recognize it at all. In fact, after a few minutes, the Windows notification appears telling me to check the protection of Comodo and / or Windows Defender. I know that Comodo is still active but this is very annoying. Then just restart the PC that the Windows security system (after 2-3 minutes) recognizes it and no notification appears. This thing rarely happens but I don’t know what it could depend on.
On this PC, before Comodo, I had Avast Free and the Windows security system immediately recognized it when turning on or starting Windows (maximum within 1 minute). In my opinion, this aspect should be improved in the next version.
I state that I have a 32 BIT Windows 10 PC with 4GB of RAM and a Centrino Core due Duo, but this happens now very rarely and with the old versions more often, only with CIS.
It’s a known issue.
The AV (not being AV CIS) on my Windows 7 is always recognized by Security Center after Windows start while CIS sometimes is not recognized by Security Center (but I know it is up and running correctly).
We were able to reproduce this on one of our machine after updating from CIS 7098 to CIS 8012. It is normal in some cases a restart is required during update because sometimes during update the task of replacing files may not be done when they are being used.
If you ever experienced this issue when there is no update, then please let us know. We had this windows recognition problem with old CIS but I think we don’t have this problem with CIS 8012.
The issue, as I’ve already reported earlier, happens also sometimes on my Windows 7 with a clean install of CIS 8012 (no update).
After Windows 7 start Security Center fails to recognize sometimes that CIS FW is up and running.
EDIT: Just after starting my Windows 7 it happened again, see screenshot.
