    windows + comodo = problems?


    Admittedly I'd never thought of it til recently- now, every time I turn on the PC I check to see if Windows firewall is on. If it is, cool, if not, I turn it on.


    Awhile back, a family member advised me to install Comodo. Seems to have a lot of features, most important of which is alerting me to files/programs trying to come through.


    However, I've read:

    a) you shouldn't have two firewalls at the same time;

    b) Comodo takes up a lot of space (memory), which is a problem on this PC;

    c) Comodo can also stop other programs/etc. from working properly- and some examples given include issues I'm having trouble with, such as copy/paste, clipboard, Windows Defender, etc.


    So would it be a good idea, and not create any additional difficulties, to uninstall Comodo entirely?


    Security is my #1 concern.

    :)

    "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.
