    I have a strange behavior on my laptop where sometimes DisplayCAL and Profileloader icon won’t launch until either I restart the laptop once or several times, or go through a series of certain steps before and after restart. Could this be due to Comodo Firewall blocking network connections during the first minute of windows startup? I haven’t uninstalled the firewall to see what happens, because it happens maybe once a week since I usually enter sleep mode each night without restarting, so I’d have to go without the firewall for a week to see if the problem stops.

    Sometimes the Profileloader icon doesn’t show up on clean startup, or disappears when waking from Modern Standby Sleep. Fast Startup and Hibernate are deactivated. When this problem happens, Profileloader service is running in the background but the icon is missing and when i try to launch it from the start menu, the log shows the error “Not starting another instance.”  When this happens, DisplayCAL also will not launch when I try from Startmenu and then the logfile stops at “Loading” and “Lockfile”.

    Sometimes if I restart once or several times, the problem goes away and both DisplayCAL and Profileloader icon will launch again.

    Other times, if I restart but Profileloader icon still doesn’t show, the log will stop at “Existing client using port 15411, Connecting to 15411…”

    Other times, no matter how many times I restart, Profileloader icon still doesn’t show. In this case, I must attempt to launch DisplayCAL which fails to launch, then restart again. Then Profileloader icon will show up, but the icon is grayscale because it thinks DisplayCAL is running (maybe because of the lockfile from the previous failed launch attempt from DisplayCAL). Then I must launch DisplayCAL and then close it immediately. Then the Profileloader icon will change to colored.

    Below, you can see the log where the laptop woke itself up from modern standby at 4:00 in the morning. Profileloader logs the error “Not starting another instance”. When I wake the laptop at 13:14, the Profileloader icon disappeared.

    At 18:30 I attempt to launch DisplayCAL but it fails and logs “Loading” and “Lockfile”.

    I restart the laptop at 18:31, and the Profileloader icon appears again but in grayscale. At 18:32 I launch DisplayCAL then immediately close it. Then the Profileloader icon changes to colored.
