    Cannot delete a COMODO Antivirus driver


    I was using IceDragon as an alternate browser for Firefox when, without my authorization, IceDragon updated itself and installed COMODO antivirus. As I am running Norton Security, I didn't want COMODO running, too. Trying to uninstall the program through the normal control panel proved useless as it wouldn't uninstall (the only option coming up when trying to uninstall was 'Install COMODO').

    I finally had to use RevoUninstaller to get rid of it (I thought). However, I find that there's a driver - cmdccav.sys - that's in my startup that I can't get rid of. Every time I try to delete the driver, it says that it's in use by another program. I used Process Explorer to try to find out what program it was but nothing came up.

    How can I find out what program this driver is associated with? Other than that, how can I delete the driver?

    Thanks.

    :)

  2. Good Antivirus + Firewall

    I would never put anything Norton on my computer.

    Nod32 is arguably the best antivirus. AVG is likely not as good, but it's free and at least pretty good.

    Firewalls, I'd put Comodo and whatever "Tiny Personal Firewall" is named nowadays on your short list. I think Kerio might have sold it now and it's named something else. Otherwise, just put Comodo on your short list. I think the current version's ease of use has taken a step backwards, seems a bit counter-intuitive when trying to do certain things with it, but overall it does a good job and the price is right.

    Comodo Firewall+Antivirus

    hey guys i was downloading commodo for a rig in the house and it looks like they changed their package!!!! Comodo firewall + antivirus has been merged and is now comodo internet security for free no trials!!! of course they offer a pro version for sale but the free one i just as good only obviously without the 24/7 tech support and remote login here is the link!!

    http://www.personalfirewall.comodo.com/download_cis.html


    if you just want the firewall it isnt aailable from comodo but you can still get it from file hippo here

    Download Comodo Internet Security 12.0.0.6818 for Windows - Filehippo.com

    just figured id let you guys know i feel comodo is incredably powerfull and secure even though the learning stage of the firewall can get tiresome but at any rate leave a thnx if yo feel it necissary

    Cannot delete a COMODO Antivirus driver capture-jpg.jpg


    "Hi All,
    We stronly advise Comodo users not to update to latest MS update KB4022716, which is available for Windows 10 users till they have new fixed version of Comodo internet security products installed.

    Affected Products:
    - Comodo Internet Security / Comodo Antivirus / Comodo Firewall (Affected versions: v6246 and below)
    - Comodo Cloud Antivirus (Affected versions: v533 and below)
    - Internet Security Essentials (Affected versions: v81 and below)
    - Comodo Secure Shopping (Affected versions: v97 and below)

    Possible Problems:
    In case you have updated to MS update KB4022716 prior to updating to latest fixed version of Comodo products, following issues may appear:

    - Crashing browsers
    - May not be able to login to Windows

    Resolution:
    If you are able to login, you can uninstall Comodo and re-install latest fixed Comodo version. Else you need to go to Windows Safe Mode and uninstall Comodo product or re-store system to state before Comodo product was installed.

    In case you want to keep Comodo and pause Windows updates for some time, you may use following steps:
    Step - 1: Click on Start icon on Windows
    Step - 2: Next click on Settings menu item, it will open "Windows Settings" window
    Step - 3: Select "Update & Security" section from there and it will show "Windows Update" section
    Step - 4: Click on "Advanced Options" next, there is "Pause Updates" section allowing you to pause Windows updates for next several days

    You can find same steps with images here .

    Reason:
    There are unexpected changes in last MS update KB4022716, which are incompatible with Comodo products.
