    No. AFAIK, it was bought & absorbed by Norton. I have PCTools final FW before absorption. It still works just fine. It is very easy to write rules for, so as to keep it current. However, I read the Wilders "TinyFW" thread every day.... just in case.

    Have not posted here in a long time.

    Windows 10 x64 Enterprise
    ESET Internet Security
    Glasswire Firewall (Used mainly for alerts as ESET is my main firewall).
    AppGuard Solo
    Mullvad VPN
    NAT Router
    Edge Chromium for the most part. I also have Brave, Chrome, and Firefox installed.
    SMB disabled
    CleanBrowsing DNS
    Adguard for Windows

    If anyone can give me a walkthrough of AppGuard Solo I would appreciate it. Used to use it some years back, but am just now getting back into it. Pete was a big help (God rest his soul). I am sure we have some other peeps who could lend a hand.
    Hit me up via PM if you want so we don't stray off topic here.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi,
    Blocksi Web Filter has not been updated for over 1 year.
    Don't you get the same with uBlock Origin filters?

    Ciao.
    :)

    Ciao Sampei :)
    Blocksi has one very unique feature, it can block unrated websites. Like that it can catch nearly any bad, but still unknown website.
    Only FortiClient web filter can do the same among freebies (at least that I'm aware of)

    What does the Join Windows extension do? In fact, I did not see it list in the Chrome web store.

    It just merges two windows into one. This is to avoid popups that open in a new window instead of a new tab

    I see.;)
    If I can give advice, I would check its efficiency, especially after so long after the last build.:thumb:

    Does Shadow Defender work well in 2004 latest? 19041.329. I mean, no glitches or slowdowns or are there some? Thinking of using virtualization full time seeing as I have had excellent luck overall with Sandboxie. :thumb:

    what will you be using virtualization for? if what you want to achieve is a stable & static os, then you should go with faronics deep freeze. it's frequently updated, unlike sd.
    if what you want to do is perform malware tests and/or install and test new sw, etc. then you should go with vm's.

    Hi, no, actually, I like to try Shadow Defender just for fun. But it would be helpful to know if there are any contingencies or issues to know in advance before installing it. If not, well, I have an image to restore from. My copy of Windows 2004 is surprisingly stable, considering all the issues out there. Thanks for reply. :)

    Shadow Defender works perfectly with Win10 2004. I use it all the time with Microsoft Defender, no other security programs needed. First thing in the morning I reboot out of shadow mode (20 seconds), update whatever needs to update, make an incremental backup, and back into shadow mode on the fly (3 seconds).

    This is the main advantage of SD compared to Deep Freeze, with DF one has to reboot to enter shadow mode. It is also easier to commit files to the real volume, it is very fast even with large files and folders... The developer only appears when there is a real problem, and as much as I used to like Sandboxie, it required constant monitoring with every major upgrade of Windows...

    I would like to add that the fast performance on my computer is related to the use of an SSD. With a normal hard drive rebooting out of shadow mode would take between 1 to 2 minutes.

    No problems here using SD on 2004 (alongside Sandboxie)
