Default Comodo issues

Recently a message appeared in the 1st capture to update my browser & i clicked agreed & i was unable to open my browser so i had to uninstall/reinstall it to solve the issue.This message keeps re appearing,is there a way to prevent it from appearing.

Don't know if there is a connection but i went to ccleaner web site to update & received this warning in the 2nd capture.

I clicked on "disregard" in the 2nd capture only to be redirected to this 3rd capture & i have no idea what it means.

Just an observations but when you elect to use security software, why then would you choose to "disregard" what it tells you? This is why and how thousands of users become infected on a daily basis. Sometimes these warnings can be false positives but on the other hand, previously safe domains can have malicious content added or be hacked. The best option here would have been to delay your update and post in the Piriform and Comodo DNS forums for clarification.

That third message is basically

"I've told you it is unsafe, several times, but if you really want to go ahead, it is on your own"

Of course anything can happen,but i basically place some trust in reputable sites & i figured it might be a false positive.

I tried the Comodo form quite some time age with a different question only to be ignored.I wasn't aware that Piriform had a forum.
