I’m logged into my machine as admin.

I have windows firewall disabled.

I’m running Windows Vista Business on SP1.

Updates began failing on 10/25 when I installed COMODO for the first time.

I tired to disable comodo and updates would not work. Tried uninstalling comodo and that didn’t work either. Reinstalled new verison, still no luck.

Tried various things to resolve but nothing has worked. What’s the deal with the localhost as a proxy? Nothing is set that I can find besides maybe comodo.

Are you running CFP 3.0.15.277 with the Windows Update fixes for Vista? Are you running Vista?

I realize I didn’t post that information originally, so I updated the post.

Windows Vista Business on SP1

Comodo 3.0.15.277
