    Maybe the Registry entries are still present.

    Try running CCleaner to remove those.

    @ conan: did a registry search and remove for both comodo and webroot.
    @ rik: daily.
    I even downloaded and ran comodo's standalone uninstaller. And searched through the Services. And ran sysinternal's Process explorer. And config sys.

    All before posting. So: If you use Comodo, what files does it add to system32?

    FIXED

    Comprehensive Instructions for Completely Removing Comodo Firewall Pro 3 [INFO]
    https://forums.comodo.com/help_for_v...-t17220.0.html

    If there is still a reference to Comodo Firewall in Windows Security Center:

    At a Command Prompt, type

    "NET STOP WINMGMT /Y" (without the quotes; there must be a space between WINMGMT and /Y) and press Enter. Then type "exit" end press Enter again.
    Go to the folder C:\WINDOWS\system32\wbem and delete the folder "Repository".
    Reboot. The Repository folder will be recreated automatically by the Security Center and will now display the correct information.

    Ba-da-bing!
