LnS 2.06p2 Windows XP Pro SP2 Hi logging seems to be sporadic on my LnS 2.06p2. Sometimes I get realtime logging with packets blocked every few minutes and sometimes nothing for hours. If I try ShieldsUp on these occasions I see nothing in the log. I am not behind a router. I am connecting with a Vodafone USB broadband modem which is like a PPP dial-up connection. When I completely remove the modem software and LnS and reinstall both programs things seem to work better for a while but then they tail off again. I also notice the problem began sometime after a failed .NET 2 SP1 installation, which was automatically downloaded to my PC through Windows Updates. Is it possible this has messed with my VC++ 2005 installation? Thank you, Gerard.
