During my previous reformat I had to do a repair install and although my PC is working fine since then I found that I cannot update to SP3 and now cannot get Comodo CIS v3.9 to install. It installs the Firewall and Defence+ but not the Antivirus. I tried running with the Firewall, Def+ and the latest version of Avira but had conflict problems. The other thing that may have happened is that the three different times I tried to install CIS I used Comodo CSC to clean the PC and maybe this has caused problems also. Any way I have decided to reinstall my copy of Windows XP Home Edition SP2 and to this end I have made a backup disk with newly downloaded copies of my installed programs such as CIS, SAS, MBAM, A-Squared, SpywareBlaster, Auto-Runs etc etc in order to be able to install most of them offline only going online when my PC was secure in order to update them including Windows Update.
I then thought perhaps that wasn't the best way to proceed and it might be better to just install Windows, my Graphics and Sound Card drivers and CIS, then go to Windows Update and update the OS to SP3 and all Windows updates to the present time then after that install my other programs etc What would be the best way to go about this?.
