Seemingly at random, and only occasionally, the statistics stay at zero in the welcome tab. The network adapter is listed and checked on the option page. This problem started only recently, after months of using LnS, and there is no way of knowing it's happening except for opening the GUI and looking. When this happens, a ShieldsUp security scan indicates that essentially all ports are closed, not stealthed. When I untick "Internet filtering enabled" and immediatedly re-tick it, the statistics begin to function normally. I use LnS 205p3, Phantom's v6 ruleset (modified), winxp sp2, cable connection, Motorola 5100 modem. I'm quite certain that no malware is at work. I've lost confidence that my connection is actully being filtered by LnS at any particular time. I really like this firewall and want to continue using it. Any suggestions as to what the problem is and how to repair it will be appreciated. Thanks.
