I have no other doubts...
Uninstall Comodo and the update is applied. Comodo IS guilty here.

Comodo made my day today...
I've uninstalled the old+patched version. Install Windows Updates. Boot.
Install the latest version (Comodo Firewall Pro 3.0.14.276).
After that... nightmare:
Can't boot, can't boot on Safe Mode or Last good configuration...
Acronis full partition backup saved my day!
I can't believe... With the restored partition, I've uninstalled Comodo...
Believe! None file was removed from Comodo folder and Windows keeps detecting it!

For the past week I have been running PCtools firewall, free edition. So far I like it and it's not caused me any problems.  :)

No help from Microsoft... :'(
Comodo is definitively off of my system. My patience dropped down. Now, Vista Firewall with Outbound Advanced Control again is back.

Hi forum friends.

I just ran the new Comodo Pro FW download over the existing one. No problems on my XP whatsoever. Just a few things work a little differently, you have to grant installer status to some programs that like to do something to your dll's, when you are accustomed to these little alterations, no big problems, less prompts, starts better, easier and faster. No problems with vidalia, Tor and Privoxy.
I am glad had to say goodbye to ZA to get to know Comodo, and yes you have to learn to tweak this beast and understand what you set it to do. Very versatile,

The previous version was a beta version. Beta versions can mess the system, but a lot of people installed that version, and now they have got problems. If you install betas, is your own risk. I installed the beta version, but i formated(again,hehehe) and i did a fresh install of new version, and is runing very smoothly.

I didn't noticed it... I thought it was a regular update. Now I regret.
Comodo is uninstalled but it left a lot of trashes behind...

This release is for the users having the problems mentioned above to verify that this version solves their problems. Note that this is not an official release but just a test version so it should not be available publicly and should be treated as a BETA version.

Being a test version, it has the followinng complications:

1 - CFP automatic updater will report updates detected since the official .268. So if updated, the firewall will be downgraded to .268 build.

2 - Firewall configurator does not properly clean windows security center status after uninstallation

Download Links :

Windows XP/Vista 32 bit
http://download.comodo.com/cfp/download/setups/CFP_Setup_3.0.14.273_XP_Vista_x32.exe

Windows XP/Vista 64 bit
http://download.comodo.com/cfp/download/setups/CFP_Setup_3.0.14.273_XP_Vista_x64.exe


What should we tell the users while PMing them. A sample Message :

"
Hello,
 A test version which fixes the following issues is available for you to test :

* FIXED! VPN Clients cant connect to VPN servers
* FIXED! cmdagent.exe consumes 100% CPU
* FIXED! System reboot takes too long when CFP is installed with some other security software such as Avast
* FIXED! CFP can not find the application behind a connection(for example kaspersky web scanner)
* FIXED! "System Idle Process" is now changed to "Windows Operating System" to describe applicationless traffic(So no more system Idle Process in anywhere in CFP)
* FIXED! Internet Connection Sharing(ICS): CFP is now compatible with ICS servers(users will need to answer some popup alerts)
* FIXED! System performance has been slightly improved
* FIXED! Defense+ allowed some applications to modify a protected file wven if it is not allowed
* FIXED! 8.3 path conversion and its associated duplicate entries/not remembering my answer problems(e.g. for BOClean or AVG)
* FIXED! if CFP.exe is active, trying to rerun cfp.exe will activate the currently active CFP.exe instance now
* FIXED! Accidental BLOCK/ALLOW for image execution popups are NOT remembered through out the application life time anymore(This means if an application is blocked/allowed from being executed without remembering, it will be asked again).
* FIXED! Default global rules for NON-P2P mode has now been changed to allow various incoming ICMP messages that affects windows updates and trace routing applications
* FIXED! New application signature database has been introduced : the size and format has been significantly changed to prevent false al;erts from some AV programs
* FIXED! Crashes while opening help file from the GUI links
* FIXED! Introduced the defense against a new keylogging technique
