    Just haven't got around to get the feet wet with SimpleWall but it sure looks to be interesting and simple. Of note his MemReduc64 is a mainstay on this end inasmuch that little creation of his alone says something on this end to the useful work of his efforts.

    How do I get simplewall firewall to automatically startup without uac screen on a limited user account please? I know my admin password so that is not a problem.

    I don’t use SW, but try to disable autostart in the program settings and create an autostart task in the Windows scheduler.

    SYSTEM RULES, the update enables isass.exe
    say you didn't have anything enabled there you'll get security policy allowed (isass.exe)

    updates do change settings, so need to revisit settings

    I just noticed Simplewall github page has been set to Archived, will this no longer be developed?

    but you can use them both same time

    To run portable do I just extract the bin.zip? May be a dumb question but what is the pdb.zip?

    Yes, you need to use folder 64 (if Windows x64) or 32, the other folders can be deleted.
    Mayby a PDB file contains information for the debugger to work with (program database) :(

    What happened to the dialogue about turning off Windows Firewall?
    It doesnt come up any more when toggling filters on and off... should I continue to turn off WF when turning on Simplewall filters?

    Thanks very much for your reply mood... Im still a bit confused as I remember that turning off WF was the recommended course of action at one point, my understanding (?) being that with both running, WF rules could override those of Simplewall.

    It is not designed to do that. Check FAQ:
