:) Mmmmm maybe you're girlfriend wants you to stop playing COD and she played with your firewall's settings to have your game crashed each time you try to open it. ;D

Okay, I'll try to be serious now.... ;)

Well, generally I've test personnaly most of the softwares before submitting infos / links and of course I've read also on different forums infos, evaluation site, ... By most I mean something like 60-70%. For the rest, my choices are mostly based on reviews, friends, colleagues, ...

In a case like the firewall thread, I was planning to put here only or mostly the ones that got a good ratings on the Matousec test site and also on other evaluation sites.

(For the moment the Matousec Test is one of the most popular evaluation tool on many sites.)

??? After reading your post, it's clear I'll make tests on my side asap.

So THX for posting about your problem Spanky because it's clear my wish is to suggest only good tools to our members and visitors.

Like I said, I tried some tests with PC tools Firewall Plus. My problems were not the same than Spanky but I've had to deal with error messages or other minor problems so......

:-\

Maybe they will have eventually an upgrade with the problems fixed but in the meantime, the link is no more in the thread. ;D
