    Firzen,
    I'm running A2 4.5, OA paid and defensewall 2.56 w/o any issues....so far. It is a little sluggish starting firefox but not that bad.

    Looking at my sig, would it make any sense to add Defensewall?

    Nope. You could probably get away with taking some of those off too. A little overkill for my taste.

    Actually looking at your sig again everything looks cool. You might not need zonealarm pro if you are behind a spi firewall and have avast with the network/web sheild going. Plus you have a sandbox going. The only reason I still have a software firewall is because my laptop connects to wifi spots still. My desktop just has A-squared/defensewall behind a SPI firewall router.

    I can't get it to work. It keeps saying "Driver is not loaded" o_O

    I have Windows 7 x64 and KAV 2010.

    I installed it, looks like a very useful piece a software. Install went well, though it did set off ThreatFire.

    Defensewall is not supported on x64 and afaik there are no plans in the near future for it either.

    Not having a 64-bit version is one thing but not being compatible with 64-bit OS is downright stupid, sorry.

    I know that I have to download the special Defensewall file by 2 pm PST on December 12. However, do I have to install it and apply the special license key by 2 pm on December 12?

    Also, I know from previous comments on Wilders that Defensewall works with Sandboxie. However, are there any special changes that need to me made to optimize the compatibility/security when using it with Sandboxie?

    Thanks in Advance.

    .
    The issue of x64 support has been discussed in detail elsewhere, but put simply developers can't access to the kernel the way they can in x86. It's not like Ilya woke one morning and thought "OMG, I forgot to make an x64 version of Defensewall - what was I thinking?" :D
