Thank you Peter. I have removed it from the list until it works better with uninstalling in Windows 7.

All work perfectly on 6801 x64.

Re: Comodo, I'm not saying don't use it...just warning it's a messy uninstall. I had tried Zonealarm...no go. For some reason, I didn't like Comodo....I know, don't ask.

That's ok Peter. I'll add it back to the list when it fully works properly with Windows 7. I do not want to have a program on the list that will cause issues like that.
