    I don't think that's the problem. TinyWall's main service runs in the background and it doesn't use the credentials of the currently logged in user. When TinyWall asks for UAC permissions it is usually a sign that the service is not running and TinyWall is trying to repair itself (e.g. make autostart entries, start the service and others it depends on etc.) I can only guess, but I would look around and see that none of the service TinyWall needs are disabled, maybe check compatibilty with HIPS software installed on your computer.

    Up until my latest insider update I was able to use Tiny just fine now Windows won't allow the service to start and can't start it manualy. Might have to finly move on.:'(

    By the way, was TinyWall OK with Creators Update?

    Herberta, I have used TinyWall about a month or so in my "upgraded" W10 and it is working just as fine as with W7. I did get once a prompt to need allow UAC admin password with my standard user account after I updated Avast antivirus to a new program version, but that is all. So there might be something in your system causing you the frequent need for the admin password. I did allow all outgoing with avast update.

    About W10 CU (or any insider version) I have no knowledge as it has not yet been offered to me. Maybe TinyWall uninstall and reinstall might help?

    Is your version activated? I am trying WFC again and didn't activate it but I can see connection logs either.

    But that is not the latest insider update, sorry. The only thing I have changed on my system is the update.

    Yes it is activated. My connection log looks normal. Rules are being created as normal but when you try to delete one it just get renamed to a random GUID. You can use the Windows native firewall administration tool to delete it though.

    Probably for the same reason that WFC is working on the latest build. Microsoft screwed up :)

    Yes, somethings up with my setup. But what? For me it is repeatable after complete reinstall.

    UAC prompt do say tinywall.exe / install. So something is disabling tw. I am thinking something not wanted....

    I am on win10 x64 creator's update and tinywall 2.1.8. The network discovery keeps turning off after I set it to on as does the file and printer sharing. All the necessary services are running. I hear it's a firewall problem. Also, I can't even share a folder because I get an "incorrect function" error. Any tips?

    Its annoying when browsers decide to suddenly deny website access due to a certificate authentication issue. Since there is no fix, its time to do a clean install of Windows and start over.

    You can either do an override or regard the site in question as unsafe until the site's webmaster updates the certificate.

    Even though you have the file & printer sharing ticked, it still has issues?

    Yes, file and printer sharing is indeed checked in tinywall.
