    It is getting better, but still not there. I wish I knew, what are its requirements, with my current settings it fails to activate unlike Sphinx. Plus it adds junk rules to WF by default. :angry:

    Junk rules is for inexperienced user, not to lose the win update, you can delete them freely.

    "Block silently" option does not create a task, as the name just says, it silent blocks.

    Be careful about "Notifier settings"

    That is what all software, that includes adware, says. Inexperienced users would not install WFN in the first place, besides WU or apps will ask, if they need to connect, that is the whole point.

    I was trying to set it to Block and Prompt, when I hit Apply, it jumps back to Block Silently, but I have logging, WMI and Windows Event Log services disabled, I suspect they are needed too.
