You DO NOT have to run the scanner in Comodo. You have the option to skip it. Its an on demand scanner only to double check if you have a virus. If your system is clean then skip it. Comodo is a firewall with HIPS. See here for an explanation. I used it for many of years.
Comodo is just a firewall with HIPS. Youcan also opt out of the HIPS when you install it. It gives you these options. When installing any software you need to read and understand everything.Do not just click next,next,next.

OK. My PC is now running well after installation. No crashes. Thank you, Diesel, for your suggestion. Now I guess I must "play" with the settings in order to tune the program as well as understand how it works. I have open some threads on their forums.
Jut to clarify: I agree with you it is always very important to exactly know what you are doing on your PC. In fact, I read that page you attached before even downloading it. Nevertheless, I believe program providers should be as clear as possible. I still don't find anything related to a previous virus scanning and the comsecuences of skipping ir or not. Furthermore, I cancelled the scan and then (and only then), the program prompted with something like "If you are sure that your PC is clean, then you can skip this step...". I think this should have been said before, don't you agree?

Thanks for coming in on this with some hard information. Much appreciated.
Is it correct -- I've been quoting this from another message -- that ZA themselves recognize something needs fixing and are working on it themselvs?
