Comodo firewall won't update - can't access Comodo forums
« on: April 16, 2012, 07:15:38 PM »
Obviously I would have liked to have raised this problem on the Comodo forums, but I wondered if anyone here is having similar problems. When I try to update Comodo firewall it just sticks on 'Checking for updates' and, strangely, the comodo forums site won't load. All other sites load fine.

The forum is loading fine for me.....of course, I cant check for updates for a FW I do not have.   

But given both those together, along with other sites loading fine, I would suspect a Comodo server hiccup.
Signature?  But I gots no pen....

Hi!

I'm using Comodo-FW and since now I got all updates automatically. If that doesn't work, maybe it depends on the settings.
Open your comodo-icon with rightklick, choose 'OPEN...', then choose 'More...'. There you'll find 'Settings' and you can change something by setting a socalled 'hook'.

(I've a German system, so I can only translate.)
Good luck!

Thanks for the responses. I didn't say but, like avthat, I also use Comodo Dragon browser. I have Comodo firewall set to automatically update but when it tries to it says I've found a bug in Comodo Internet Security.

Hi!

Sometimes it's necessary to de-install completely, if a program doesn't work fine. After that you can change to MS Firewall and restart.
Use your Browser and let Google search for 'cfw_installer'. You will see several types of it due to your system. Download and install that one, which fits your system. This will download and install 'Comodo'-FW
Before installing, you should check the settings, for I didn't install 'GeekBuddy' plus 'Dragon' and don't use 'Defence+' (set it to 'off'!).
After the clean installation, you should de-activate the MS Firewall and restart your system.

If I didn't forget something, that should do. Good luck!

Just to let people know, there are a number of threads on the Comodo CIS forum about this, but there's no solution as yet. It would appear to be a UK problem affecting one ISP. Things were OK yesterday for me but not today.
