Both of those firewalls leave a lot of debris behind. I have been successful in removing them both completely; however, I had to manually remove folder/directories, manually delete registry keys, and go in and manually delete the hidden device drivers. Good luck!
I have the lesser version myself, RegSupreme, and like it very much.
CCleaner is good, too.I know a great number of posters abhor the use of Registry cleaners, but Ccleaner might do it for you. Otherwise, manually. Open the registry. (Regedit in RUN) Do a search for entries. Use COMODO and ZoneAlarm and delete any entries you may find. It could take a while. Then do as suggested and remove all the folders. I,m not sure if you need to delete the drivers. Without the principal program, they should not get used.
I go into REGEDIT and search, but that is not recommended for the novice. Full system backups are your friendAnd how would I delete the registries and those hidden devices
Actually, re-reading your original post, I recall having this exact same problem with Comodo. Unfortunately, I do not recall the solution. Perhaps I never found a satisfactory one and simply reinstalled Vista?I have fully uninstalled COMODO Firewall and ZoneAlarm Firewall, however my Secuirty Center still tells me that both of those are still active. Why is that?
