    What I mean by this is that whenever I run a game with GesWall installed, the game gets a red line around its window and lags SEVERELY (can't play at all).

    Is there a way to easily turn this off from all games? Why would it even touch them? It's not the same as the untrusted application-line. o_O

    Doesn't this work... right-click the tray icon and select Disable?

    Hi,

    Why did you installed the game untrusted or forced to run untrusted ?

    I never did! Already installed games runs with a special color, not the default one. I don't know what happens.

    Page42: I guess, but I want to leave the protection enabled - I only want to get that issue away from my gaming applications.

    It's been a LONG time since I messed with GesWall, but can't you just add it to the trusted list or what have you? Honestly if you're playing the game alone and not running a browser or another internet application at the same time, you don't need the protection enabled. If your system is clean before playing, playing isn't going to change that. If this is some multi-player game (for instance World of Warcraft) you aren't going to get into any trouble since the servers aren't on the client-side thus no one can exploit/hack them.

    I'd just turn the thing off so you can play your games halfway decently. You're in no danger, just switch it back on when you're done.

    Yeah, I guess, if that's the only way... it's not the protection I'm worried about really, it's why GW is acting like that. Why would it automatically touch my games, and only them on top of that? :doubt:

    Hi,

    When you launch one of this games, could you check GeSWall Console for isolated applications to see if this game is listed ?
    Have you set your CD/DVD Device as Threat gate in GS ?

    Regards,

    MaB

    It's not, but I see the G on the top right, and if I click it I've the option to "restart as non-isolated". Funny thing is, this option doesn't work. :doubt: I've manually added the exe for the game to never be isolated, but it doesn't seem to listen apparently.

    Well it seems to work when I add them manually, it's just weird that it shows the G and the option to restart without isolation. :doubt:

    Hi, it seems just a GUI bug. I noticed this thing long ago with SSM Pro and GesWall. In spite of G icon on SSM window, SSM was infact NOT geswalled( not isolated).

    If game is actually runnning in geswall, you will see it in geswall log.

    Maybe you'll gain more insights into what is going on if you have Policy Notifications and Attack Notifications enabled. And where do you have Malicious Process Termination set?

    The free version does not have any of the notification or termination settings I mentioned? I don't run the free version so I don't know.

    Nah, I meant that since it doesn't isolate even if it looks like it, I'm pretty fine with it, but where do I find these logs?

    Ok, fine.

    Open GesWall console via tray icon right click or left double click. Log is at bottom left side. Click that and it will open.
