Good news everyone!

Comodo Firewall is now, again, fully compatible with Windows 10! It used to be impossible to install it properly on a fresh install of Windows 10, but now everything got fixed!

Reclaim your privacy and secure your OS today! Make sure you customize the installation (to opt-out of the promo junk) and you’ll lend-up with a free high-end firewall! As usual, should you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact me!

Enjoy!

Fix – Windows 10 update KB3189866 stuck at 45%

Posted in Announcement, Bug, Windows with tags , , , , , on September 17, 2016 by Sirusdark

Hello!

If you’re running Windows 10, it’s yet another sad week. Microsoft messed up again and their latest 400Mb+ update (KB3189866) doesn’t even download properly. Most people (including myself) are stuck with an update progress stuck at 45%…

Fear not! Stop waiting and simply install the update manually in just a few clicks. Here are the direct links to download it (select the appropriate system architecture):

32 bit:
Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1607 for x86-based Systems (KB3189866)
windows10.0-kb3189866-x86_48cc54806747877357a732fee03118eb38e92947.msu

64 bit:
Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1607 for x64-based Systems (KB3189866)
windows10.0-kb3189866-x64_2c3e91a8162269579c8bf26a502c620d41efef0d.msu

Run the installer and after a few restarts, you’ll be good to go again.

For some reason, this identical update when downloaded via the Windows Update Catalog web downloader, uses another filename (adds the prefix: “AMD64-all-“)… It’s strange as the files are IDENTICAL! I double checked for you and and these Checksums proves it:

kb3189866_checksums

Fun fact! The update’s filename contains its own SHA-1 checksum hash! (2c3e91a8162269579c8bf26a502c620d41efef0d)

Enjoy!
