I still think you have a firewall problem.
Others think so too.
If you dont know what Anti Virus Program you are using, windows firewall might be in use.
I am running Trend Micro ,have been for years. It automatically turns off the Windows Defender. Double checked and Defender is turned off. Trend Micro website say's to keep it turned off as two systems running at the same time causes conflict?? Thx for heads up. Hope this info helps.No hard shut downs so status meter running fine so far!!
Correct me if I am wrong, but Win Defender and Win Firewall are two different programs. They are next to each other in MY Control Pannel. I dont run Win Defender either............... What about the Firewall?????
Windows Defender is turned off.Question ? why turn off the Windows Firewall?? How would that effect the Status Meter crashing with a hrd shutdown?? Curious?
Windows 10 defender is turned off.
Disabled Trend Micro.
Version 6.7.0 does not work.
Installed 6.7.0 on Windows 7. Doesn't work.
Installed 6.6.1 on Windows 7. Works just fine.
Installed 6.6.1 on portable machine. Took the machine to the local library. No problems. Installed 6.7.0 on portable machine and went back to the library. Does not work.
You think you know the problem and others think so too. Well, the truth is not determined by popular vote. Unless you have additional information regarding the firewall problem, your advice is of no use.
