Ever since a few days ago, when I received notification that a new GlassWire version was available and downloaded/installed the new update, I have been unable to get GlassWire to work.
When I start it up, it says it is attempting to connect to the service. It does that for a little while and then fails with an error message stating that “The GlassWire service stopped running.”
It offers a “Restart Glassware” link, which if clicked on gives me the Windows admin blocker that asks me to continue which I do. And then I click on the “connect” button below the restart link and it once again says it is attempting to connect, but fails again.
The software had been running for a long time (maybe close to a year) without incident. And although I get regular updates to Win10, nothing new has been applied in the last few weeks.
I tried re-downloading and reinstalling. Same effect.
I’m seeing rogue icons showing up on my desktop with names like GWCtlSrv.exe.15260.dmp and I believe these are coming from GlassWire.
Any thoughts on how to get it going again?
