    My problem is as per thread title: ESS refuses to detect modified/updated applications.

    Say if I update Firefox, IE, MSN, Steam - ESS seems to forget that these ever existed, and doesn't bother asking me if I'd like to allow these modified applications or not. I have to set the ESS firewall to Automatic, before these programs are allowed access to the internet - but I want Interactive mode...I want to be the one in control of which programs gets to do what.

    Right now, that's my number one grudge with ESS. :mad:

    I was fine was Sygate, with NOD32 2.7. But I wanted a decent combination, which would (obviously) use up less of my precious resources. I thought I'd try ESS, and I was loving it at first - until I updated Firefox, etc...:thumbd::cautious:

    Are you suggesting that I should add all programs which require internet access, into that list?

    Or are you suggesting that I should try ticking those two boxes ("Enable detection..." and "Allow modification...")?

    If the first suggestion, then I don't see why I should to be perfectly frank. The firewall should be doing it's job properly in the first place.

    If the second suggestion, then ESS was previously in Interactive mode with those two options enabled. It was by unticking them, and setting the ESS firewall to Automatic, that I can now use these updated/modified applications.
