    Nod32 is turned off when I start computer, I have to turn back on.

    May be Comodo Firewall, I am not sure.

    Specs below in signature. Nothing new added except upgrade to Comodo 3.9 a couple months ago, but this just started in the last week. I had resovled a problem where Comodo and Nod32 were taking a long time to go green so to speak, but I fixed it and all loads quickly after I turn Nod32 back on thru windows security center.

    Any thoughts,



    Ken

    Every few months I have a client that manages to disable the "start real-time protection at startup" option out of nowhere. I am fairly sure that it is something that the Nod32 kernel is doing to itself since there is a password on the clients and users only have user rights. Anyway, it is minor enough that I haven't tried tracking down a cause.

    You can fix it by hitting this check box:

    They are checked, although I don't have the exact choices that you show.

    Something is turning it off maybe Comodo.

    Maybe malware is turning it off?

    It is possible that something like your firewall is conflicting and keeping the real-time scanner from starting up. First thing I would trying is a clean uninstall and reinstall since that can sort out a lot of problems like this: http://kb.eset.com/esetkb/index?pag...earch&viewlocale=en_US&searchid=1244638024997

    If that doesn't take care of it then you might be back to uninstalling/disabling other programs that may be conflicting to narrow it down.

    I did the uninstall/reinstall on NOD32 could do again.

    May try running Comodo in the Training Mode before uninstalling it.

    Comodo 3.8 never had problems. Maybe 3.9 which I have doesn't like NOD32.

    Could it be a virus/spyware. Nothing I have has picked anything up. May try another spyware like Malwarebytes or SpyDoctor.

    Could be some of my Windows settings, but not sure where to start on that, short of doing an image restore from 3 months ago which would take me back to Comodo 3.8. That's a pain though reinstalling newer programs and my wife's Outlook email settings.



    Thanks,


    Ken

    Hello,

    If you are not running ESET NOD32 Version 4 I would recommend installing it. The self-defense module should prevent this from happening.
