How do I remove Comodo Security Suite droppings from my system

For the second time my new Acer Aspire Netbook has lost its network connections. The first time, after fiddling around with the Comodo personal (free) Internet Security Suite to no avail, I uninstalled it and reinstalled it. Problem solved.

A couple of weeks later, after connecting with a wireless network "out there", it happened again. This time uninstalling Comodo was not enough. It's gone for good. I now have the Windows firewall and Avast AV. And no network connection.

After trying a long list of fixes, I have determined that the hardware is fine, the connection is there and alive -- pings work, and the Network Connections window lists it as "Connected, Firewalled".

I just deleted all twelve keys from the Registry that include the term Comodo. That regained connection with the laptops own Shared Docs folder, but it still won't connect with other computers. This is progress, but not success.

It is now clear to me that Dragon Doodoo is the problem, and that many pats are still there. Does anyone have a clue where else I should look to clean out the rest?

This is more of a mal-ware issue than a technical issue.
Please post in the mal-ware forum for help with this issue.

I suggest you go to the Malware Forum and run all the steps located in the START HERE. These self-help tools will help you clean up 70% of problems on your own. If you are still having problems after doing the steps, then please post a HiJackThis Log in THAT forum. If you are unable to run and/or post a HJT log, then post that in your initial post in the topic you create in that forum.

If you are still having problems after being given a clean bill of health from the malware expert, then please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).

Comodo's registry keys are impossible to modify, even if the user attempts to take ownership of the key.

Here is the proper way that I was able to remove it:

backup registry using ERUNT.

You want to make sure before removing the registry entries that you stop the Firewall Service and Driver:

Service is: CmdAgent
Driver is: CmdMon
Simply change the Startup Type to "Disabled."

Open Device Manager.

Go to View, select Show Hidden Devices.

Scroll down to the Non-Plug and Play Drivers.

You should see two entries for Comodo:
Comodo Application Engine
Comodo Network Engine

Disable if they're still active. Reboot your computer.

Remove those registry entries.
Also remove the startup entry for CPF - Go to Start/Run, type "msconfig". Go to the Startup tab, find the entry for CPF, and uncheck the box. Click Apply, then OK.

Then reboot the computer.

Alternately, instead of editing the registry, You can use Revo
