OK .. over a year ago I had Comodo installed. I uninstalled it back then and just recently found that Windows was picking it up as active. I have deleted registry keys, legacy registry keys, dl programs to remove Comodo, serached for the name to delete, etc. When I go to Shields up it says that I am totally stelth. Unless my Uverse gateway does that it seems I have something blocking access. Which in of itself is OK but I do not have any control of it if it is. In P2P applications it shows "Firewalled" eventhough I have poked holes for specific ports in my routher. I am at a total loss to figure out if this thing is actuially gone or just a Windows error. I am running Windos Xp home, sp3. Avira Free which has no friewall.
In the meantime, there are many many websites that I just can't connect to for no apparent reason. Linkedin is one that comes and goes, as just others whn I do searches. It happens with both IE and Mozilla. Any help would be truly appreciated.
