    It is well known that its self-protection ability is so poor . I hope that it will has a great improve in 2.06 final edition.

    Look 'n' Stop contains options to keep both Application and Internet filtering active even if the application is stopped or killed.
    In addition there is a password protection.

    So I don't know why you are saying its self protection is so poor.

    Maybe the persons saying that simply try to kill Look 'n' Stop without looking further if the protection is still there or not.

    You didnt kill the protection LnS provides, just the graphical user interface.
    That is, IF you have checked the option Fredric points to:
    To enable it go here and check: Options/advanced options/"Keep Internet Filtering active even if the application is stopped" and "Keep Application Filtering active even if the application is stopped"
    If you kill the process, the tray icon disappears with it. A simple test at GRC.com shows full stealth and new unknown applications are not allowed to connect to the net.

    On another note, tsilo, when you kill Look 'n' Stop process through Windows Task Manager, and you re-launch Look 'n' Stop application, does the Look 'n' Stop application titlebar show 'Look 'n' Stop #1' or just 'Look 'n' Stop' ?
