    Hi

    I have just installed Look'n'Stop 2.07 on a Sony VAIO, running Windows XP Professional, Service Pack 3.

    The VAIO has an Intel Pro 3945ABG Wireless Card which connects to a Linksys WRT54G Router and the router is running the Tomato Firmware, Version 1.25.

    Why do some of the entries in Application Filtering show

    C:\DEVICE\HARDDISK0\DP(2)0X1C01A2400-0X1A32555E00+2\PROGRAM FILES\INTERNET EXPLORER\IEXPLORE.EXE
    instead of C:\PROGRAM FILES\INTERNET EXPLORER\IEXPLORE.EXE

    and

    C:\DEVICE\HARDDISK0\DP(2)0X1C01A2400-0X1A32555E00+2\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\SERVICES.EXE
    instead of C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\SERVICES.EXE

    Others show correctly.


    I have noticed 2 drivers -
    lnsfw.sys - Look 'n' Stop Driver - Version 5.0.0.5 which is digitally signed
    lnsfw1.sys - LNSFW1 LnS Driver - Version 4.0.0.6 which is NOT signed

    What is the difference between the 2 drivers?

    Thank you

    Hi johnjinsf,

    \DEVICE\HARDDISK?\ is low level information, you possibly using dynamic drive?

    As for the two Look 'n' Stop drivers, lnsfw.sys is the packet filtering driver, lnsfw1.sys basically for Application filtering driver.
