    Hello.
    Does anybody have a problem with this program in Windows 10 ? Each time I start a whitelisted program, TinyWall freezes and drops the internet connection for 20-30 seconds.
    I mostly want to know if this is a general bug with Windows 10 or something on my machine and if someone has any idea what is going on.

    It doesn't have wiki and I've read the site several times before posting. I've also emailed the contact email.
    Please don't assume I'm stupid.

    Did you try that from TinyWall FAQ: ?

    TinyWall's service crashes, or is often unavailable to its Controller, or I get UAC prompts on boot.

    Probably some other security software is interfering with your TinyWall installation. Make sure that the TinyWall Service is not disabled by you or by other software, and that security, control, or sandboxing software on your computer does not limit or restrict TinyWall.

    Another possible reason could be bugs in TinyWall's service that make it stop or crash for an abnormal reason. If there is a file called "errorlog" in C:\ProgramData\TinyWall, please send this file to me so that I can investigate any issues and make corrections if necessary.

    It seems there is a compatibility issue with tiny wall installation on windows 10. When you are installing it get stucks in the end and I can see that the .net optimization services under the taskbar are using 99% CPU and it doesnt move unless you kill the installation.

    Logs below:
    Code:
    Installing assembly 'C:\Program Files (x86)\TinyWall\TinyWall.exe'.
    Affected parameters are:
       logtoconsole =

    TinyWall seems to be running fine on my W10, although I'm no expert, and may be missing something. Is there anything specific that I should look for?
