I’ve been using CPF for about a year now, I’ve ran numerous online tests and it flew through each of them, it would appear that my pc is invisible to attacks?..
Anyhow, the only thing that is really bugging me lately is the amount of notifications I get (although it’s always been like this). I get pop-ups asking if my f/w can access the screen, keyboard, directory, global hook, web browser, registry etc, despite having the ‘Remember my answer’ box always checked. Don’t get me wrong I love the f/w, but it’s just this that is a bug bear right now.
Here’s a snap of the main screen, I have tweaked the settings slightly, although I’m not sure they’re right?
Ok, I’ve uninstalled, removed old files, cleaned the registry manually & by a couple of programs, quick defrag & reinstalled the newest version. All seems to be running, but I have a couple of questions:
Network Defense - Firewall security is set to ‘Safe Mode’
Proactive Defense - Defense Security level is set to ‘Clean PC Mode’.
Are the above settings ok, or should they be changed in any way? If so how should I change them?
