    I noted when reverting Browsers to default they were deseleted, or, turned-off, meaning Browser protection would have, in effect, been fully disabled.

    Screenshots to illustrate - feedback would be appreciated.

    Could you please explain what's the problem? Deselecting browsers does not have any effect unless http traffic is provided on different than default ports or you've changed the default setting for redirecting http traffic which done for ports and applications selected as browsers by default.

    Yes, absolutely, apologies if I was not clear in my original post.

    The first screenshot illustrates Browser defaults, chosen by me which would be the two Browsers that I primarly use, those being IE and Firefox and the rare occasion, Windows Live Messenger.

    The second screenshot illustates when reverted to default, meaning, if a user choses default, Browser protection is effectively removed.

    I did not see you edit as my Internet connection is bad due to local weather issues - I do not quite understand your explanation, it clearly indicates to increase protection, select Internet Browsers, which, I would assume everyone does. All EAV installations I do, I select this option. If I should not, this would be a learning experience.
