Windows 7: Comodo security suite stealing keyboard/window focus

Comodo security suite stealing keyboard/window focus

just a heads up...
there's currently a bug in at least one, possibly more, Comodo apps such as Internet Security Premium (v5.0.163652.1142) where the updater function steals keyboard/window focus. so if you're typing away at an email and or whatever and notice some of what you typed is AWOL, this may be why. it can also cause full screen apps (a game in my case) to minimize to the task bar - very annoying!

they know about the bug - hopefully fixed next version

workaround - disable automatic updating

I haven't experienced any of that with Comodo yet. Thanks for the post because if I do in the future I will know what to do =D.
