    Nah, I wouldnt worry. There is no program on earth that works on every configuration of a computer there is. Me, for example, have used Outpost Pro for a couple of years until recently, but would not have done that if I would have given up on the first BSOD I got with it ;)
    Those two who complained were just lazy i think.

    For me LnS worked well from the beginning (alltho it wasnt too easy to learn :) ). I like it because it is tiny and it is just a firewall, not adblocker, not activex blocker and all other blocker stuff one can think of that firewalls are bloated with nowadays. I use other programs that does that better.

    I went from LnS to a lifetime key for Outpost but I am back to LnS too. It's much lighter and does a great job. Outpost still batlles with BSOD... And I agree with sukarof that people who have problems from the start just should read a little bit better what to do. LnS is great!

    Well, I have to agree with those that LnS is not 'everything'. A huge disadvantage of LnS is the inability to cooperate with the NX-bit. I hope the developers will come up with a solution soon.

    @ beetlejuice69,

    I have moved your post\question to a more appropriate Forum and created a thread for the same.

    Found here---> PC-Viper experiences

    I agree w/ sukarof, there will always be people w/ bad experiences w/ every program. I've not had any troubles w/ LnS, it does what I want it to and it does it very well. I don't want the extra crap like content filtering included in my firewall either, I'd rather use Proxo.

    The only thing I disagree with is learning to use it. Once you get a grasp on the concept of rules, it's really pretty easy. Just get down how to import the rulesets and don't overwrite the pre-configured rulesets, and you'll be fine (I mean "you" in the general sense.)

    This is only for advanced features: "Watch thread injection"... and the new ones in the beta driver.
    The others very often don't propose these kind of features.
