What problems are outstanding ?

As far as I can see everything seems to be great although I am still getting the Asus motherboard screen on start up which isn't a big deal but just seems strange to have appeared out of nowhere. Certainly getting rid of Comodo and reverting to Windows firewall in conjunction with Avast on the XP drive seems much snappier. Strangely the other drive running w7 still has CIS with AV disabled together with Avast and appears happy as Larry!
I presume the latest log is OK from your point of view.

For Essexboy

Both drives seem to be working very well.  However I did discover that on my second drive (running W7) Comodo was not showing under All Programs, Control Panel, nor was it found by CCleaner or Revo. It showed in the cascade when I clicked on Start and as a Desktop shortcut also in the system tray bar. I tried to reinstall Comodo but it didn't seem to want to know. Ultimately I believe I've got rid of it by using the Hunter Mode in Revo. Is this anything to do with the virus or should I make another post elsewhere?  For the time being I'm now using the W7 firewall in conjunction with Avast!

It may have been damaged - If you have removed it all then try a re-install
If you get any errors then let me know what they are

OK. Meantime just closed down XP drive, opened with W7 - asking allow CIS to make changes.
Noticifcation area still show CIS premium and updater.
Revo uninstaller now showing only uninstaller and website. Will try reinstall both.

Reinstalled CIS - shut down - restart - CIS asked to restart to complete? Yes/No - Yes restart - error receiving font Geek Buddy - asked restart Y/N answered No... Geek Buddy: error receiving font X many times.
Didn't try reinstall Revo at this stage.

Alas I know nothing about Comodo

I would recommend that you ask on their forum as I could not find any reference to that error

Foe Essexboy.
OK done some research and looks as if I'm not alone  to the extent that others are going the extra mile to devise their own removal tools. Lesson to be learnt as far as I'm concerned is don't go anywhere near Comodo again. Thankfully, and thanks to you, my prime drive is back running sweetly so I'll be looking at formatting the secondary drive very soon.
Thank you so much for all your help.
You are a real star.

There is just one odd thing that perhaps you could throw some light on.....Each morning when I have switched on my computer I haven't seen any startup screen...no Asus screen, no boot screen, nothing. It seems to take longer than normal (might be my imagination) but eventually opens up at Desktop on my default XP drive with all the usual icons in the system tray already in place. If I turn off and switch back on I get theAsus screen and then the usual startup screen followed by Boot Manager where I get the option to select which drive. If you could throw some light on this point I would be very grateful.

Apart from the above (and the Comodo issue which I'll sort later) it all seems very good and just hope that if the nasties were going to reappear they would have done so by now so as far as the removal of tools anytime is fine although I am going away tomorrow.
