    Appreciate some feedback from our members. I am running Windows 7, now when I am shutting down, the "action center" white flag icon pops up stating both firewalls are off.
    Now this is for only 3 or 4 seconds, however that would mean my laptop is vulnerable for that split moment, is this a concern or noto_O My system shuts down as stated above within 3 or 4 seconds. Thanks in advance.:)

    This registry key will block all network activity when LnS is not running.
    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\lnsfw]
    "BlockAllBeforeInit"=dword:00000001
    
    I don't run Windows 7, so I can't confirm if this will work for you.

    Since its shutdown related, try the following advanced options;

    - 'Keep Internet filtering active after the application is stopped'

    Hi Phant0m:
    I tried your suggestion, but it did not work, still shows as LnS is shut down.
    This may simply be a glitch in Windows Action Center. As shutdown is in progress, it appears to shut down LnS first than the rest of the processes, which in essence is a matter of 3 or 4 seconds. It would seem to me the systems should shut down the firewall last before turning off. Again appreciate your help and the other members suggestions. I am at a loss at this point. :doubt:

    When shutting down, I don't see any messages.

    Manually exiting Look 'n' Stop Application however;

    But this means nothing, because its only complaining about the Application itself not running, but the drivers still loaded if you using 'Keep * filtering active after the application is stopped'
