I ran the tool once and they were blank ??? so I saw where I could type in something so I typed in the url although it would not take it all so I typed in the main part but even still the logs were blank.

This is a recent clean install of win 7 on a reformated drive. reformated with linux first so I would get nearly 'RAW" then with win 7 x86.

when I installed comodo I did so while the ethernet was unplugged and it didn't behave right at first, so I'm wondering if I redo everything and reinstall comodo while connected if comodo's DNS servers would not accept that proxy; because I run XP Pro with that setup and the rouge url is nowhere to be seen.

Why would you need a proxy in a home environment ? Proxies are mainly used in enterprise locations .
