Comodo caused very slow boot up and shut down

Posted: 08-04-2008, 11:45 AM

Vista 64 bit
Avira anti-virus
4gb RAM

Since installing Comodo 3.0 on my PC is now taking about 15 minutes to
shut down and about 10 minutes to boot up. Prior to this a restart took
75 seconds. I think it must be Comodo as uninstalling it fixes the
problem.

I've unticked the option to run automatically and instead it starts
using task scheduler.
I've also set Comodo firewall + defense to learning mode and rebooted
to no avail.

I'm thinking I'm just gonna uninstall and turn Windows back on. That
should be enough with my routers firewall, Avira AV and regular runs of
Spybot, A2 & Adaware.

I don't use a third party firewall, but instead rely on Windows built i
firewall and Avira as well as my router and haven't had any problems.
used Comodo on my old XP machine but had problems with cmdagent hoggin
resources and ended up uninstalling it the same as you have. I thin
you will be just fine with your current setup minus Comodo

Nobody needs this kind of software on a functional OS.

Quite right!

That happens with badly coded software.

Then you don't use Commode.

Undoubtedly Comodo is a system hog. It takes a lot of cpu (48-55) but
then it has a Unique design and far far better than Windows FW. If
anyone have doubt go for some FW leak test and I do not remember the
site name, but the leak test contains a Virus, which did not stopped by
Windows FW. Luckily I have KIS 9, Spysweeper in place and quarantined
the threat. Again I have taken the test Comodo installed and it stopped
and displayed it as a threat. Now I am not using the Comodo, KIS 9 has
everything in it

Comodo has a inbuilt Anti Spyware scanner which required to update
manually

Thank you for your replies, I've uninstalled Comodo now and am back to
75 second reboots.
