WindowsXP Updates stopped working...

I’m running Comodo Personal Firewall and haven’t been having any problems using the Windows XP Updater until recently. Now, I have to set CPF to “Allow All” in order to use the windowsupdater, and then reset CPF to “Custom” after I’m done updating WinXP. Anyone else having this problem and, more importantly, anyone have a solution for me? Many thanks in advance!


Hi Ken, welcome to the forums.

Are there any related entries in CFPs Log when you attempt a Windows Update (WU) with CFP set at Custom?

Also what does the WU log file WindowsUpdate.log (main Windows directory) say the failure was due to?
