This is what your first post boils down to :
To be able to download ONLY the firewall!!! NOTHING ELSE!!!! NO VIRUS SCANNER, NO DEFENSE+, NOTHING BUT JUST THE FIREWALL!!!
Try uninstalling the ISS...leaves data all over and totally ruins the windows security management system (i.e. security center).
If you do a search you will find several posts why I REFUSE to download the CIS just for the firewall
My only wish for this product is for the developers to look at my open and hold support ticlkets and actually fix these issues, along with fixing the un-installer. Pretty simple, huh?
5---- (repeat 2 with flame)
Even when set to block all incoming connections, will ask for permission of new networks
(mention 2 again, mention 1 again more flame)
I wasn't attacking you, I was trying to help you understand and sort out the only problem in your post
that any one could help with. The middle of #5.
Then I come back to read you don't even have it installed and you won't again until they put there
good name and reputation on a special neutered firewall only installer for YOU.
So let's dissect the list of serious security issues a little deeper.
#1. This is something YOU want.
#2. This is an admitted issue, I am confident they are working on.
Also this is only an issue if you uninstall, If it works a beaut why would ya.
And if you did want to uninstall clean, there is an uninstall bat file available and REVO Uninstaller is a
great help. I have never had an uninstall problem with the firewall or CIS on XP with REVO.
#3. Is reinforcing that #1 is something that YOU want.
#4. Points out that you have raised support tickets for #1 and #2.
#5. Repeats #2 twice, #1 again. Add some flame.
Introduces the stealth wizard and port blocking issue.
Which YOU apparently don't want to sort out, I tried.
None of the above = Security hole or threat or weakness.
So basically you are just here to complain and people trying to help are cramping your style.
It's like saying Ford's are sh*t because they won't build me a Mini Bike.
And all this for Free to boot. I can deduce we are all talking about the Free version because
if you had paid for support you wouldn't be in the forum starting threads titled "Need Help".
and refusing anything of the sort.
I'm not turning it into a right/wrong thing. It's apparently a Me Me thing for you.
Later and Peace
