    I beta tested Glasswire way back and they always told us to do it that way so I continue to do so.

    I always restore Windows Firewall defaults, but NEVER clean install, unless I'm troubleshooting a problem. And I haven't had any problems for many, many version updates... :thumb:

    That's probably all you really need anyway!

    So, you're satisfied blowing away all your rules, settings and history with every new version?

    On my Win 10 Pro E8400/G35 rust bucket test system running 20H2 Pro, I decided to install 2.3.323 over .318 using the "Restore Windows Firewall Default Settings" option for the first time since a start-from-scratch 2.2.201 install in May 2020, that being the first v2.2. (In a "just to be sure" mode I decided to Revo Pro advanced uninstall 2.1.167, the final v2.1 from Oct 2019. And "just for grins" if Revo would zap all the GW stuff. It did.)

    In viewing the before and after Defender's advanced settings, all 92 GW rules were still present. As well, all resident Defender rules seemed identical. "Seemed" as I'm not going to dig into this any further as I never do that default settings thing.

    Cheers.

    I followed your [recent] earlier advice of the other day, posted above, and decided to do a reset of Windows Firewall. I can't win. :argh::D

    Correct, they couldn't be activated. But to be fair even with those features I probably still wouldn't have liked GlassWire. Sometimes you just don't like certain apps, I had the same with AppGuard, it had a lot of fans on this forum, but I hated it, too complex for me. For network monitoring and inbound/outbound control I would rather use tools like SpyShelter, TinyWall and Windows Firewall Control.
