    Hello,
    somewhere in the WWW I found a sentence that I should enable the WPF setting in the Adguard settings for spartan, this setting should also prevent me from ads at other places in Windows 10, e.g. the app store.

    I enabled this WPF settings and it works for spartan, I thought "fine".
    Until I open IE 11 and Chrome 42, no adguard any longer.

    Is this correct?
    Either filter for adds in "Metro Apps" (incl. spartan) OR "normal" browsers?
    I overlook another setting?
    Is this a Windows 10 problem? (I haven't a PC to test Adguard on Windows 8)

    Peter

    I think you meant WFP driver? In this case, yes, it is used mostly to filter traffic in Win 8 modern UI applications and IE. If you use any other browser, it is not recommended to enable WFP driver.

    I have the WFP driver enabled in Windows 10 and its working fine for me in Spartan, Internet Explorer and Chrome. I also use it on Windows 8.1 with Chrome, Firefox, IE, etc. and it works fine there too.

    I also use only the WFP driver on Chrome Beta release and it works fine for me.

    hmmmh... strange...
    If I enable it => No ads in Spartan, but in Chrome and IE 11
    if I disable it => Ads in Spartan, but not in Chroem and IE 11

    I used Adguard 5.10.1164 and see in your configs that you use 2011/2012 I will update now and see if this is the reason.

    Maybe it's different in Win 10, although BB doesn't seem to think so, I only use Win 7 and WFP driver works just fine at least in Chrome Beta which is the only browser I use. I haven't even upgraded to IE11, still on IE10. I'm sure Avatar & Vasily will work it out for us quickly

    Try the latest beta found here: http://download.adguard.com/5/beta/setup.exe

    Otherwise, it's still working fine on a clean installed Windows 10 x64 build 10049 in a virtual machine.

    I just did another clean Windows 10 x64 10049 install. Installed the latest Adguard beta, enabled the WFP driver, rebooted and finally tested all the browsers (Project Spartan, Google Chrome and Internet Explorer) and filtering is working correctly in all three browsers. Are you using some sort of anti-malware software?

    It is wrong to say that WFP driver won't work with other browsers, but we presume that something may go wrong. TDI, on the other hand, is a well-known technology that we are sure will work without any 'surprises'.

    I updated to Revision 5.10.2010.6363 from 5.10.1164 , works now. My fault.

    Try running the beta installer again as there's been a few important updates since. As for why there's no update notifications, betas don't display them unless you're using a beta tester license.
