Windows 7 x64, Windows XP SP3, Fedora

Step #1

Uninstall all AV/Malware/Tuneup utilities. Yes, the lot (Malwarebytes excepted).

Reasons - we have seen Comodo cause BSODs and freezes before

Also, those "Tune Up" programs generally do more harm than good and are possibly a contributing factor here.

I am unsure about Threatfire, but to make things simple uninstall that too.

Use Revo Uninstaller to uninstall Comodo and the other programs too - Download Revo Uninstaller Freeware - Free and Full Download - Uninstall software, remove programs, solve uninstall problems

Step #2

Install Microsoft Security Essentials so that you do have good protection -

Also reset the Windows Firewall to its default settings -
START -> type firewall.cpl -> press ENTER -> select Restore Defaults (on the left)

Then see if you still have a problem.

Registry cleaners - the registry does not actually need cleaning. Registry cleaners are essentailly a scam.

Malwarebytes - personally I would just set it to run about once a week and turn off the real time monitoring. It doesn't seem to be as bad as other applications though, so up to you.

Glad to hear that you can now run scans, have you noticed a performance increase too?

yes I have also followed some tutorials on the forum, used this[2]=Performance%20Maintenance and turned on the AHCI mode, also i have found that essentials already has a antimalware process in back ground so won't use malware bytes real time.
and just 1 thing, is it worth to install winpatrol? with essential and malwarebytes?
could it give freezes conflicts too?
great forum :)
