    Win 10 has switched off my third party firewall !!!

    Win 10 has switched of my third party firewall ( Trend Micro ) today and switched on Win 10 firewall.This is getting annoying and I think Win 10 is behaving like real Big Brother more and more.We know Win 10 is blocking CCleaner to work properly,no control over updates or restart etc...I wonder if NSA backdoor is here too ?!

    No problems here with CCleaner. You may wish to re-install the software.

    Make sure you are running the latest version of Trend Micro.

    If you are still on Windows 7 or 8 and are planning to move to Windows 10, Trend Micro recommends updating your Trend Micro Security Software prior to installing Windows 10. This is free and you can follow these easy steps to upgrade your older version to the latest one.

    I have not had any problems with CCleaner, As far as having more control over the updates that has changed within the last day or so

    Yesterday, Microsoft released a couple of new updates for Windows 10 (build 10240). The latest updates, KB3081448, KB3081449 and KB3081452 improved the OOBE and upgrade experience for Windows 10. Now, it seems like Microsoft has enabled the ability to disable automatic app update for Windows 10 Home users with the KB3081448 update. Previously, Windows 10 Home users weren’t able to turn off automatic app updates, which was pretty annoying for some users.
    If you’re using Windows 10 Home, check for updates on Windows Update and grab the latest updates to enable the ability to turn off automatic app updates from the Store.

    You might want to install Trend Micro again over the top of the current installation to see if that remedies the problem. Other people are running third party firewalls with no problems so I would guess it's something to do with Trend.
