    I'm currently trying Defense Wall on one of my older PC's which is running XP Pro SP3. Eventually I plan to move it to my main desktop which is running Win 7 Pro x64. So far I really like it. Can't see any issues with this firewall running on our main desktop.

    But I'm wondering is there a default trusted list? I know they have one for untrusted applications. Reason I'm asking is I was surprise to see, for example Adobe Reader and Driver Max running as a trusted app. Shouldn't Adobe Reader run as an untrusted app? My plan is to change Reader to untrusted.

    Thanks.

    I thought it would still work, are you sure?
    If not then I'm going to have to try Appguard.

    Thanks, too bad I really like Defense Wall. But I need it for my newer PC's which are 64 bits.

    All applications that were installed before DefenseWall automatically become trusted. But DW has a list of applications which automatically become untrusted as they use internet.

    Most of the users here at Wilders have the same problem. Tzuk's Sandboxie has solved the migration to x64 perfectly, but programmer behind Defense Wall isn't quite there yet, knowledge-wise. :)

    Don't be too hard on him. He's stated several times in these very forums that he would work on a x-64bit soon. He's collecting information about it.
    He also stated that he doesn't want to compromise security for usability because he dislikes the idea of having a “placebo” for x-64bit OS instead of a real strong security application. I'm hopeful he'll come up with something soon.


    Regards.
