    Hi All,

    Is there an advantage or disadvantage to using the WFP Network Driver? I've been testing with it ticked, should I also test with it unticked? Just curious...

    Well, it's up to you. But there *may* be incompatibilities with anti-virus/internet security suites though. The advantage to using the WFP driver is being able to filter Internet Explorer 64-bit with Enhanced Protected Mode enabled and Metro IE on Windows 8.x.

    Boo Berry,

    It seems you are telling me, I should NOT be using this WFP Network driver on my Win 7 X64 system. as it seems something for Win 8 X64, am I reading that correctly?

    Like I said, it's up to you. If you do try it and notice any issues (websites not loading, website errors, etc.) report them so avatar can look into the potential incompatibility.
