Private Firewal
« on: December 17, 2014, 08:42:34 PM »
3 or 1 years ago the Private Firewall was recommended to me here and been using it since. Anymore it will not fire up automatically on restart. Actually it probly hasn't been running for several months till I just discovered this problem. No apparent ill effects. Windows Firewall is off and no router.

From Google it would seem a universal problem. Rather a PITA really. Do you still recommend Private Firewall? I have V7.0.30.3 which claims to be up to date. W7 Home Premium.

Hi, amxyplx. 

I checked your help threads and Private Firewall was recommended when you had a Windows XP computer.  With Windows 7, the built-in Windows Firewall works fine.  To use the Windows Firewall, you will need to uninstall Private Firewall first.  Then go to Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Windows Firewall\Customize Settings and check the box to turn the Windows Firewall on.
