I have got a free 18 month key from Avira for their internet suite Pro 2012 which has a inbuilt firewall also

I was previously using Comodo firewall version 5.5 (free)

I am trying to uninstall the Comodo firewall but I am unsuccessful

I tried to uninstall using add or remove programs as well as uninstall option in the comodo firewall program itself.

In both cases i get a message that cannot uninstall & the computer restarts & keeps restarting after the Windows XP boots.

Both times I had to do a system restore to be able to run my computer

I am using Windows XP SP3

I dont want to keep both the firewalls as I am told that it is not advisable.

Please advise me on how I can safely remove the Comodo firewall

Thanks for advising

Hi Newbie1011,

Have a look at the Uninstaller Tool for Comodo Products.

Hi Newbie1011,

Have a look at the Uninstaller Tool for Comodo Products.


This utility is not suitable for me as I have Comodo Internet security ver 5.5 & this utility stops at ver 5.4

Please recommend alternative procedure if possible

Thanks for advising

It did work for the user in the post but he was left with no internet connection & had to do a lot of further actions to get back his connection.

I dont want to take that risk

Maybe I should wait till the uninstaller is upgraded to include ver 5.5 if there is no harm in having comodo & Avira firewall running simultaneously ?

What is the advice of the experienced members ?
Can I wait ?

Thanks for advising
