Comodo Firewall

I run win XP (SP2) and installed Copmodo Personal Firewall from the October DVD edition of the magazine. All seemed well and it appeared to be working. However, when starting up the following day, all seemed normal until I tried to connect to the Internet (I use Firefox and Thunderbird). The system dialled up and then crashed. The "Blue Screen" flashed up with a note to check the hardware.

I finally worked out what the problem was. It seems that Comodo was not recognising the graphics card (ATI Sapphire Radeon X800GT) as the icon was missing from the system tray. Using System Restore to go back immediately before the Comodo installation cured the problem.

As an experiment I again tried installing Comodo with the same result. Any ideas what is happening other than a fault within the software of Comodo or the graphics card having a problem seeing the system?

Try this, double click comodo icon on desktop, click security tab then double click on "scan for known application". After this has run close comodo window. Right click icon in system tray, highlight "personal firewall" and go to and click exit. This stops the firewall. To restart double click icon on desktop and click "show application window". Worth a try.

Just to say I recommend not using Comodo - it has caused lots of people many problems.

Two interesting replies! Thanks to both of you. A pity that Comodo seems to cause problems as, on paper at least, it seems a good piece of software.
