The Cmdagent.exe file belongs to the Comodo Firewall and is known to cause 100% CPU usage problems on Windows computers. Additionally, if you try to end the cmdagent.exe process from the Processes tab of the Task Manager, you may get an “Access Denied” error message. You get this message because the file is part of the Comodo Firewall, which might be functional when you try to end the cmdagent.exe process.
Various methods have been proposed as a solution to resolve the high CPU usage problem by the cmdagent.exe file. However, before implementing any of these you should ensure that the cmdagent.exe file you have is legitimate. The correct location of the file is C:\Program Files\Comodo\Firewall\CPF.exe.

Non-system processes like cmdagent.exe originate from software you installed on your system. Since most applications store data in your system's registry, it is likely that over time your registry suffers fragmentation and accumulates invalid entries which can affect your PC's performance. It is recommended that you check your registry to identify slowdown issues.
