Since I installed this latest GW version I kept finding that Windows Firewall Control kept switching to Low filtering profile (it’s supposed to be on the default Medium filtering profile), and it was only today that I found that this appears to be resulting from the new GW version, which had the firewall locked in On state (evidently conflicting with WFC), whereas I want it always Off. I kept clicking on the On/Off button, and it just stayed On.
So, I reinstalled GW, and found that initially its firewall was off (great), but then not long after, I noticed WFC had switched to the Low profile again, and, sure enough, GW had switched its firewall back on. I was able to switch it off, but soon it had switched back on. I tried rebooting a few times with all the settings correct, but GW would turn its firewall on soon after its launching (with firewall initially off). – This seems really weird! – Never has this sort of behaviour from a program before.
This is hopeless behaviour and definitely needs fixing! I just hope it can be fixed quickly.
Anyway, heartfelt thanks to all the GW team for their great work, and I wish all you great people a much happier 2021 than this year!
