    Hi,
    I have heard great things about tbe LooknStop firewall and decided to give it a try. I installed version 2.04 (LooknStop_Setup_204.exe). However, everytime I try to run the program I receive the follow error message.

    Unable to load the lnsfw driver (Error 0)

    I tried a reinstall of the software, but encountered the same results. I am running Windows XP.
    Thanks,
    Shelb

    Hmmm,
    Thanks for the help, but that did not solve the problem. I receive the same error message with the new version.

    Thanks for the help.
    In the Policy console I have changed the value of 'Unsigned driver installation' from 'silently succeed' to 'warn but allow'. However, there is no policy 'Unsigned non-driver installation behavior' listed. Do I need to add this in some way?
    The help file for WinXP Management Console references 'Unsigned driver installation behavior' but make no reference of 'Unsigned non-driver installation behavior'. Is it a policy on XP?

    I tried reinstalling LooknStop with the change to the 'Unsigned driver installation behavior' and encountered the same error upon startup.

    Hey Shelb

    Are you installing Look 'n' Stop under Administrator?

    Yes I am logged as administrator.
    Also forgot to mention that I am not getting a the warning window that mentions the driver signing during the install. I have seen it in the past for software install, but not this time.

    Right click on "My Computer" on the desktop and go-to Properties, access “Hardware” TAB, and click "Driver Signing" button. Can you tell me what’s selected all in there?

    OK, Uninstall Look ‘n’ Stop using its Uninstaller, re-boot the Machine and after re-boot access Device Manager and in the Menu go-to View\Show hidden devices. Drop Down “Network Adapters” and tell me if you see anything corresponding with Look ‘n’ Stop shown.

    Still no luck after reading the linked thread.
    Its approaching 2:00AM here, and I am going to turn in for the night. I am going out of town until Thursday and will try to experiment some more with this then.
    Thanks for your help.

    Hey Shelb

    I’m sure Frederic will come in and ask for Registry Informatics, he’ll get to the bottom of it… :)

    Phant0m,
    I just wanted to post an update to let you know that I resolved the installation problems I was having. Turns out I had to disable some hidden network adapters in the device manager. I am not completely certain why they were confilcting with the device driver installation. They were left from an old dial up account and were not being used anyway. Once, they were disabled, the signed device driver pop up windows executed and the installation went smoothly. Again, thanks so much for your help.
