I had a different partition with XP's "internet connection" meltdown (no internet connection at all) with the new Comodo version installed (my assumption based on Comodo not turning on/working). Now on this XP partition with "online Armor" not even a week old, the same meltdown occurred. And I repaired it in a similar way (I first had to uninstall IE7 as it was already installed on this XP partition). See https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=196969. The only two possible causes I can think of is the installation of Spybot on each of these XP partitions. I am wondering if Spybot is allergic to some firewalls or it takes time to adjust? Any connection or is it just a coincidence?? I am wondering if others have had this problem or is it only a fluke to my set up? (Note: the other common connection is that both partitions are TI10 images (on DVD restored to different partitions) but this problem has not occurred until I tried out Spybot, so I am inclined to say that this is unrelated).
