    Hi, just a small question here. I've just got rid of ZoneAlarm because of the problem it created with Add/Remove programs on my computer. I installed Kerio Personal Firewall instead. But everytime I log off my account or shut down the computer, an error message appears. It was too fast (just for half a second) that I cannot read it, but something like "the program failed to initalize because windows is shutting down". Actually, this is not even a problem since everything is perfectly fine. But I wonder why that happens and what I can do to get rid of it.

    Ok, so whats happening is that you are getting the error message: The application failed to intialize because the Window station is shutting down.

    Why??

    Kerio Firewall is not shutting down, or attempting to run at shutdown...

    Solution:

    Look in options in the settting if Kerio Firewall, and disable everything, and slowly re enable one thing at a time, and shutdown after one is disabled. Reboot, and enable another one and shut down, etc, etc./...

    thanks for replying, technician1. When you said "setting of KF", you meant the overview/preferences tab, right? Ok. There's not a lot of options in there. I disabled everything (automatic update, generate crash dump, enable password, and allow remote administrator), but the error message still appears. I enable the options one at a time, but it doesn't solve the problem then.

    i've just found out the weird thing: kerio firewall doesn't even exist in the startup list, but it does run at boot up. Is it abnormal?
