    The current version of SpyShelter seems to work an awful lot easier than version 9 or 10. The auto-allow is letting almost all the mainstream programs through, and SSF only prompts for the unusual stuff :thumb:

    Same here.......I really like ver. 11.3. It’s running very smooth.

    @ichito, many thanks for sharing the settings information!

    So is it true Spyshelter is not really a firewall, it is more like Windows firewall control?

    It does NOT replace windows firewall, when installed?

    like many other firewalls, it uses WFP and add some features on top.

    I'm not familiar with Spyshelter so I'll ask

    What is WFP?

    If it is Windows Firewall Protection does Syshelter run without Windows Firewall being on?

    I don't use it, I use another firewall.

    @sdmod Only "firewall" version is using WFP (on Vista and higher) but the rest?...actualy there is no comparison to any other app...Windows firewall control also :)

    No it's not true, it's not like WFC. It works independently, so if you allow some app via WFC, then SS is still able to block it. Tools like WFC and GlassWire simply manage rules from the Windows Firewall. SS does not, it's a standalone firewall.
