I'm hesitant to install. It took me forever to figure out why this app never worked for me. The reason is below which was fixed in 2.6. Glad they listen to feedback. I am running 2.6 right now with no problems. Well one issue, when I installed it, it deleted all my custom rules I spent so long on with Advanced Security. Wasn't a big deal though since I have the same rules in Malware Defender. I just referenced it to make the ones in Advanced Security again. I have made some using this app and it works really well. The tray context menu is a handy item.
