A few months ago, I installed Comodo firewall but ran into some problems with it so I uninstalled it or so I thought. I happened to be in my security center recently and it showed that both Windows firewall and Comodo firewall were active. My computer seems to run okay, but I've heard that running two firewalls slows it down. How do I know if Comodo is actually running or if it uninstalled correctly. It IS NOT under my "Programs" so I can't uninstall it there or with any of my other uninstall programs. I've looked through my registry and don't find anything there either. Any ideas?

Try reinstalling, then uninstalling from "Safe Mode".

FAQs Windows Security Center

Windows Security Center uses a two-tiered approach for detection status. One tier is manual, and the other tier is automatic through Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI). In manual detection mode, Windows Security Center searches for registry keys and files that are provided to Microsoft by independent software manufacturers. These registry keys and files let Windows Security Center detect the status of independent software. In WMI mode, software manufacturers determine their own product status and report that status back to Windows Security Center through a WMI provider.
