    Hi!

    I am new to Look 'n' Stop and just received my license. It seems that finally my search for "pure" firewall comes to an end. However, I have few questions about Advanced options - namely the two options "Keep internet filtering active after the application is stopped" and "Keep application filtering active after the application is stopped".

    In the help file there is explanation only for Application filtering, and it says:

    "'Keep application filtering active after the application is stopped': this option is only for Windows 2000 and XP. When enable, Application Filtering is still active even if you stop the Look 'n' Stop application (or if a malware application killed Look 'n' Stop). Already known connecting applications are handled according to the rules, unknown applications are automatically blocked. There is no log."

    I have Windows Vista x64, how come it isn't greyed out then, if the protection doesn't work with newer operating systems? And does the internet filtering part work, because it is not mentioned in the help files at all?

    Regards,
    Spysnake

    The help file likely hasn't been updated.

    Yes, I confirm these options work for Vista, Win7 and x64 as well.
