you do with protection disabled puts your system at high risk!
Do not disable protection to run an Untrusted application 'Trusted' - use the 'Run as
trusted' command (Context Menu) or use the 'Run as trusted' button from the
Untrusted Applications list. Another option is to change the file status to Trusted.
DefenseWall gives you several timed-disable options and will automatically resume
protection after that time:
minutes, 30 minutes, 60 minutes
The procedure and choices are the same for HIPS, Outbound and Inbound Firewall.
Right-click the Tray Icon - Click Disable......(module), choose the time period and
click OK. That item will show a check-mark: indicates protection disabled.
Protection will resume automatically after the time period has expired.
'Stop protection permanently' must be re-enabled manually.
To manually Re-enable protection, click again on the disabled item.

The Main Program will show 'Defense is Disabled'.
Click on Disable HIPS Protection in the Tray Menu. Check-mark is removed. Tray Icon
will now be in normal state - protection is enabled.
If you start an application that is on the Untrusted Applications List
while HIPS is
disabled, it will run as Trusted!
If you re-enable HIPS protection while any application is running in the trusted state, it will not change to 'Untrusted - DefenseWall will alert you.
If protection is disabled at startup, you will get a notification, and again intermittently,
until re-enabled, as long as you have not checked the "Do not show me.." box.
Disable Firewall Protection
In the same manner as above (disable HIPS), after selecting to disable the inbound or
outbound firewall protection, the particular menu item will show check-mark.
When disabling Inbound Firewall, ensure Windows Firewall
