I did a search on this topic but found nothing. I have had Comodo Firewall installed on my PC for around 3mths now with no serious problems to report. It has been updated to the latest version since last weekend. I find it an excellent Firewall and relatively easy to use.
My daughter and I share this PC (both administrative accounts) and I have noticed that when I sign in after my daughter has been on the PC I get the little Windows warning shield in my taskbar telling me that Comodo is switched off and no firewall is working. When I then hover the mouse over the task bar icons there is no response and it takes around 15-20 seconds before any text appears and then I get the normal "Your computer's security level is set to 'custom'. All systems are up and running" message and the windows warning disappears and everything works as it should again.
My Windows firewall is switched off so there shouldn't be any conflict. I am sure that this is more than likely some sort of glitch with Windows but has anyone else ever encountered this and is there a solution?. I worry that my PC is unprotected even if only for a few seconds.
I tend to use the switch user function rather than logging off although I have tried it both ways and still get the same warning each time.
Thanks in advance,
