I have the free firewall with Defense+ but I am about to ditch it unless I can find a solution to my problem.
I am an older retired man and my brain does not work as well as it once did…hence the problem.
I play around with a lot of different software packages and this involves installing, using, uninstalling and so on.
Invariably, when installing/using/uninstalling new software, I either forget to put Defense+ in the training or installation mode and, as soon as I click on the new program, Defense+ pops up a message. At this point, even when I click on allow, NOTHING happens for a significant period of time (maybe 45 - 60 seconds) but its too long. At this point I can no longer put Defense+ in the appropriate mode because after the 30-60 second wait, the new software does something else which Defense+ doesn’t like and we repeat the process. This goes on for a while as I sit in my chair stewing and saying unkind things about Defense+.
If I do put Defense+ in the Installation Mode, I keep getting the pop-ups asking me If I want to stay in the Installation Mode. The problem here is that if I’m not paying attention and don’t respond in 30 seconds she goes out of Installation Mode automatically.
If I disable Defense+ or put it in the Training Mode while I’m playing with the software, I invariably forget I have done so and I find out a few hours or days later. This, of course, is unacceptable.
Any solution…possibly change the amount of time it will stay in the installation mode before timing out?
