Windows 7 32 bit

Recommended Posts

I was told that Lavasoft Personal Firewall 3.0 will work with Windows 7 32 bit. I just purchased it and there was a missing file something like AFW.EXE during the installation. It caused the good old BSOD after rebooting and the Lavasoft shield was greyed out. I have uninstalled it. Was I told incorrectly that it would work with Win 7. If it does not, WHEN? I have used Lavasoft Firewall for years and have been very happy with it.

EDIT
I saw an answer in another post and have submitted a support request as a paying customer. Still any info appreciated. Edited by wcw1

None of the tech specs mention Win 7:

You'll have to wait for an answer from Lavasoft, as this forum serves mainly as support for the free version of Ad-Aware. Maybe you should request a refund if the salesperson misled you.
