Custom Network Firewall rule being deleted ?
« on: February 18, 2022, 08:07:09 PM »
This has happened twice now. A Network firewall Rule I created is gone from the Network Rules List.  I can't say 100% it happened after an update to the Avast app but its most likely reason.  Its preventing me from accessing a machine remotely when this happens.
