    Did not notice it :) Details:

    New version of Kerio Personal Firewall has been released.
    You can download it at http://eu.download.kerio.com/dwn/kpf4-en-win.exe or check for updates from currently installed KPF4.

    Version 4.0.9 (11 Dec 2003)
    ==========================
    + possibility to switch off learning mode in Network security (added
    "Any other application" rule)
    + reset of statistics
    + improved packet filter editor
    - alert and logging can be enabled/disabled directly by clicking on
    the rule line
    - hotkeys for moving rules (CTRL + up/down)
    - multi selections for removal and changing the positions of the rules
    - edited rule remains selected after editing
    + when user enables/disables network traffic, it is logged into the
    network log
    + user can disable remote administration. KPF port 44334 can be stealthed.
    + added McAfee VirusScan 7 and McAfee Personal Firewall 4 detection. KPF
    crashed inside McAfee's cslsp.dll if its installed. Therefore KPF popup
    filter is disabled in this case.
    + filter rules are also applied for packets directed to unopened ports.
    In this case, if no rule matches, packet is dropped. It is now possible
    to specify rule for unopened port to let windows generate "Port
    unreachable" ICMP reply (e.g. ident port (113) to allow proper work of
    ident daemon).
    - when popup hotkey is switched off and on again, it actually works
    - network/system rule couldn't be created when application path contains
    apostrophe
    - fixed gui layout when using large fonts
    - fixed update checker and product registration when using proxy
    - update download canceling works properly
    - fixed bugs that prevented Windows XP remote desktop to work properly
    - fixed nested IP groups
    - fixed Hotmail natively in Outlook Express

    seems to have solved my crashing problem, but man. it's starting to use more resources isn't it...up to 6mbs from 3 to 4.

    still a bargain compared to the other free bees, but disapointing to me.

    usage: 7004k, so just about 7mb, I guess. hmm, not worth a change for memory issues, I guess. plus, it has been working nicely, stable, and secure on all sorts of networks all over the world....

    thanks, dealer.
