Firewall interface locks up when adding files by browsing disk

User interface of Personal Firewall Pro version 3.0.25.378 locks up if you try to add files by browsing the disk in any “My *** files” section of Defense plus. You can add files by selecting processes with no problem.

The corresponding function on the firewall side, as opposed to the Defense plus side works fine. I have tried:

  • reinstalling several times
  • checking Faq and forum
  • disbling anativirus and anti-spyware real time protection (AntiVir, Adaware basic and Spybot)

Also more minor problem. Have disabled monitoring of memory accesses for a program (IdriveETray.exe, a backup program tray app.) by setting up a security policy add applying the policy to the appropriate process but Defence PLus is still logging hundreds of memory access events for the program.

This is a great free firewall. Hoping you can help with the two problems I have.
