Many thanks!! To my anoyance this issue started the other day, put up with it for a while then spent 10 seconds to search google, another 30 or so to download the script and run. A system reboot and problem solved. Again my thanks!

Hello Shawn am working on fiends Vista machine and I downloaded the Comodo ISS and had the icon in the notification area but also an annoying small pop up on the top of the desktop.

Deleted it but it also deleted the notification area icon. Now I get what I have to do I just want to make absolutely sure that this will only affect that feature as she particularly wants email and net stuff left intact.

I know I am being a bit over cautious I suppose but also want to get it absolutely right, and dont want to mess this machine up.

Hello John,

It shouldn't affect them at all.

I created a shortcut of this (the .bat file) hoping to pin it to either the taskbar or the start menu. However, when I select and r-clik on the new icon the context menu does not have these options listed. I am at a loss - help.

Hey mate,

If you like, you could create a shortcut using this below that will let you "Pin to taskbar".

explorer "full path of .bat file"
