Seems if there is a reason to force my laptop to shut down and then restart that Eset has to rebuild it's config for the firewall. I have it set to interactive. Which I prefer. Once setup I get few if any notifications. Example: if I'm away from home and Acronis starts it's backup (at Windows shutdown) occasionally it just sits and runs even though it's not connected to the home network. I will force the laptop to shutdown. I then reboot and find I need to go through the process of rebuilding the firewall allow/block options for apps, etc. This is something that has started in the last month.
