Hi all, I've been using Jetico for quite some time now but recently it started acting strange. After various periods of time, regardless if my PC was just sitting humming to itself or running something, Jetico will freeze. There is no direct indication for that though. When it freezes, the "optimal protection" is still in effect but while the systray icon still shows "Jetico personal firewall - optimal protection" when I hover the mouse over it, right clicking it will produce nothing. If an application that will cause a pop up starts, no pop up will show and that app would freeze as if it is waiting for you to set the rule in Jetico. If i try to close the "fwsrv.exe" process from the task manager, the systray icon will disappear, but the process won't go away. Restarting Jetico at this point will cause the systray icon to appear again but the situation remains the same. So far the only way to resolve this is rebooting the PC. When I reboot the PC after the freeze, it would take much longer than usual and windows will let me know the fwsrv.exe process is not responding. So far I tried: Removing and reinstalling Jetico. Creating a fresh rule set from scratch. Reinstalling windows. Contacting Jetico (i know they usually answer within a few days but nothing so far). Did anyone encounter a similar scenario or has any thoughts about what might cause this behaviour?
