If that is the case you might ask this question on the Avira forums since the problem began with Avira Personal version 12. Have you tried temporarily disabling the Comodo Firewall from its icon in the system tray before installing Avira Personal version 12?

There is a current discussion of Avira 12 at the Comodo Forums that you might want to check out.

Avira version 10 does not have this kind of issue...
Hiyya Necroticis I rather fancy it is still causing a a conflict mate - could try disabling the firewall while you update your Avira. I know my Kaspersky goes ape if there is a slightest hint of any other AV or security on board except for MBAM and then I have to set it not to check system files.

Try Revo uninstaller it will check for any left over reg items for Comodo.

Anyway why not go the full suite with Avira instead of just the AV? I tested it sometime ago and it's pretty light. But like Max said too the Comodo free is really a top app - if I wasn't sold on Kaspersky that is what I would be running.

Flags Emsisoft and Spyware Blaster too. Seems it wants to be king. I only use it as an on demand scanner, so I'll skip this.

True..I finally finished updating it..I think the reason for this is there is already a firewall feature in Avira Antivirus..Glad it was disabled in as default in the free edition..

I downloaded Comodo v5.8.211697.2124 last night, but I didn't have a chance to install it until this evening. I've installed dozens of versions of Comodo over the years, but this was by far the smoothest and quickest in that there was no need to uninstall the previous version and all of my settings were carried over perfectly to the new version including the complicated lists of Firewall and Proactive Defense+ that I have developed.

The new v5.8.211697.2124 has a new 'enhanced protection mode' for x64 Operating Systems which is supposed to enhance the protection of the kernel. The only drawback to the new Comodo installer is that it installs Comodo Geek Buddy without the user's consent. Fortunately it is a stand alone program and can be easily uninstalled from the Windows add/remove programs or Revo Uninstaller even then there are entries in the Windows start menu and in the Comodo Trusted Files that need to be removed. After uninstalling Geek Buddy its logo will also be removed from the Comodo GUI.

The Comodo development have come a long way and this Comodo 2012 release is by far the cleanest and quickest version transition I've seen yet.

Actually you can opt out of Geekbuddy when installing. On 1st screen click on Customize Installer:



Then uncheck GeekBuddy:



There are also other configuration choices:
