Online Armor and System restore

by CesiaS / June 14, 2009 8:09 PM PDT

I'm running a trial version of Online Armor firewall and I just noticed that while OA is running (standard mode) I cannot access System Restore

message appears " unexpected error. The parameter is incorrect.."

When I close OA the system restore dialog appears as normal.
I was considering buying this firewall, but it seems to be creating problems - I also had to shut it down to install recent Windows updates - surely not a good thing if the firewall needs to be shut down. Am I missing something?

Thank you

Thank you Donna. I like OA so far , so good to know about using learning mode! I suspected that the answer was in changing the settings , but I did not know which settings. Thank you again

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
