I've been using Privatefirewall for a little while now and it's sort of OK...mostly=> but also quite a hassle in some ways. For example, if I want to read any PDF file with Foxit Reader, I have 2 choices AFAIK... Click about 20 firewall queries EVERY time, or click 'details' and then 'train' in that window - EVERY TIME. It is very annoying - it seems to think EVERY single PDF file is a separate security problem to address. I set Foxit as fully allowed too, and that made no difference. There doesn't seem to be any setting for allowing files by type either. Worse still, after a restart it forgets alot of settings. So after Process Hacker had to be killed off and I had to reboot - it asked me all over again if Firefox, Firemin, Thunderbird, my mouse software and a few more things were allowed. It seems to be lightweight and decent in most ways, but if it's going to act quite this stupidly all the time I need to find another light but better firewall to replace it. (Even the ancient Kerio Personal Firewall was WAY easier to get along with than this.) Any suggestions on how to make it behave better somehow ?!? Thanks.
