    Apologies. I wasn't able to make much time, still touch-in-go sort of thing.

    This anomaly was seen before. When customers used Total Uninstall or Winsock repair utilities.

    I don't have much time at the moment, in the meantime I suggest to make sure Look 'n' Stop is uninstalled via it's own uninstaller first THEN a reboot is a MUST! And then you can use Ccleaner or whatever your preferences are, then straight to re-installing Look 'n' Stop product and keep an watchful eye on ANY prompting screens complaining about ANYTHING. Take window captures and post them all if any.


    If this doesn't work and you still don't mind experimenting, I would consider uninstalling Look 'n' Stop via it's own uninstaller, ... re-boot, and do a winsock repair even if everything seems okay with your Internet. Again on this you'll need to re-boot yet again, then install Look 'n' Stop, re-boot and see if the NIC is still not checked in Look 'n' Stop 'Network Interfaces' list on Options Tab / screen. If still not checked then uncheck 'Automatic Selection' and manually set a check next to your NIC and see if the IP is something other-than 0.0.0.0 o_O

    Hope you had some sleep before returning to this post.. heh

    Just thinking... I better add to also upon uninstall and reboot, have a look in Device Manager and expand Network adapters and with Show Hidden Devices set, make sure no Look 'n' Stop emulation drivers exists there.

    Try to cut back on procedures much as I can as I can think about it. :shifty:

    Aaa shoot! While you at it, try exiting Look 'n' Stop application after booting back up into Windows. Wait for everything to load and manually launch the Look 'n' Stop application and see if that makes any difference.

    Also it would be nice for every install of Look 'n' Stop you make and rebooted that you would do that LoadOrder steps again to allow me to validate the driver order.

    I didn't give up. I just got sidetracked with other things that came up. I tried everything you mentioned since my last post, except repairing the winsock. I even tried updating all of my Lenovo H535's newly available device drivers for Win8.1 which included chipset, usb filter, ethernet, wifi, video, and sound. And, I did this directly after a fresh clean install in which I only turned off Windows Firewall. Still no dice. Look "n" Stop has same exact symptoms as I noted.. But I'll try that this evening in which I'll be back to let you know the results.

    Once of the things I've been working on, is an unrelated issue with Win8.1 and my external USB 3.0 HD disconnecting on it's own after 7 min 15 sec. With Win8, it stays connected as long as I want, but with Win 8.1- no dice. There are some bugs with these 8 OS's, no doubt.

    Regardless, I really appreciate your help and that you didn't give up. :) I will touch base this evening and let you know how the Winsock thing turned out. Thanks!!:)

    No need for the repair. You have installed Windows 8 via Clean install, then the repair won't do nothing for you.

    The NIC type must not be supported.

    Thanks. Yes, since I started this thread, I must of clean installed Win 8.1 a half dozen times for various reasons, but mostly for troubleshooting Look N Stop. I really would like this program to work. I used it on XP for a few years and I really grew to like it. But if it's not meant to be, then I'll have to look elsewhere for something as similar as possible, hopefully with your advice.

    I'll try Frederic's app this evening and post here. Give me 6-7 hours from now.
    Thx.

    Thanks, do I just run the app and take a screenshot of the dos prompt? Since there's no other instructions, or commands to type, here is the screenshot. Looks kind of empty.

    It does. Was you connected at the time of execution?

    Run it again with commandline parameter /all

    Example: AdaptList.exe /all

    Was you with Internet when Look 'n' Stop was installed?

    The first screenshot a few posts up was created when Look N Stop was installed and running. The bottom screenshot was created when Look N Stop was uninstalled. I'm always properly / physically connected to the internet with an ethernet cable. I didn't use the /all command because I wasn't clear on how to do it.

    Phant0m, What about removing windows 8 and clean installing Windows 7? I'm really growing to HATE Windows 8. Do you think Windows 7 will improve my chances of getting Look N Stop to work? I guess it depends if it's a hardware issue and if it supports my NIC?

    It 'may' be something specific to Windows 8. It is possible it is something simple...

    You done a clean install of Windows 8 and Look 'n' Stop installed 'without complaint' and the Look 'n' Stop emulation driver for your NIC is shown installed and seen as working properly in Device Manager .. but doesn't work, then its strange.

    If Look 'n' Stop installation thrown errors and then Look 'n' Stop doesn't work with that Windows 8 install session..., then there may be additional tasks to try.

    The Interface type is common however, when Look 'n' Stop is installed and you with Internet. Look 'n' Stop AdaptList utility isn't able to recognize the active NIC with an IP layer. Since this utility is replica of how Look 'n' Stop looks for and uses active NIC, understandably Look 'n' Stop shares the identical problem.


    I don't really see a problem with your NIC hardware, we share the same and I'm running Look 'n' Stop x64 under Windows 7 x64 and is working perfectly good. Do I think you should downgrade from Windows 8? Only you can answer this one.

    In any-case this is a strange one.

    It's not Windows 8 that killed Look N Stop it was the update 8.1 that finally did it in.I'm running 4 pc's with Windows 8 that had Look N Stop working on all 4 of them.Then when I updated to 8.1 on all 4 machines it stop working.The application filtering still works in 8.1 thats about it.I mess around with the settings with Look N Stop I found that you can right click on your ethernet adapter and go to properties uncheck the Look N Stop Driver and click ok and your internet will work then sometimes u renable it.It will actually get internet filtering to work under 8.1 with some messing around with it,but as soon as you reboot you have to disable the driver and renable it again.Sometimes it works sometimes it doesnt.Right now I'm using Look N Stop for application filtering since the internet driver dont work.Hopefully somebody can fix the driver.

    @Jared123. When 'Keep Internet Filtering active after the application is stopped.' isn't enabled. When Windows 8 having loaded completely, exiting Look 'n' Stop application and re-launching makes no difference right?

    Would be interesting to see when Look 'n' Stop - Internet Filtering stops working, running the AdaptList.exe utility and having the contents of it... but with the commandline parameter usage.

    OK. Thanks gents! I'm in the process of trying a Win7 on my UEFI machine. I didn't buy a Win 7 Pro Key yet. I downloaded the iso and I'll see what happens. If ok, I'll give Look N Stop a drive around the block. Thanks again for all of your help.

    On first boot up of the machine with Look N Stop driver enable there is no internet at all even exiting Look N Stop and renabling it,but when you goto ethernet adapter properties and disable the driver and renable it.It will sometimes get the internet filtering to work.As for the Adaptlist I ran it with all command line with the look n stop driver enable but no internet.Heres what I got:

    I'm also having issues with LnS on Windows 8.1 x64. LnS worked fine on Windows 8 x64. I upgraded yesterday to 8.1 and as soon as I logged in after the update I got an error message about being unable to load the LnS driver file.

    I then uninstalled, rebooted, reinstalled, rebooted, and now I don't have any connectivity if the LnS driver is checked under the Ethernet adapter properties page. Both wireless and wired adapters don't work when the driver is enabled.

    When I reinstall LnS it doesn't even ask for permission to install the network driver like it usually would. I'm guessing that the driver is incompatible somehow with Windows 8.1. I extracted the x64 MSI file from the setup file and ran it in compatibility mode, but had no luck.

    This sucks, I've used LnS for years and don't want to have to adopt a new firewall.

    Interesting. There seems to be multiple Look 'n' Stop driver installs for mostly each NIC. Probably from the procedure to have it work again until reboot.

    Was the Agnitum Firewall installed before or after Look 'n' Stop product?
