Yes I saw this or very similar the other day, when I was bored and tried to run an eset online scan of Windows 10. H_C using default recommended settings for SRP, CD & firewall. Running as SUA. I assumed the block was H_C related, but I didn't really care about running eset scan, so I forgot about it.
Strange. It wasn't H_C because there was nothing related to this in the log. Restarting didn't help either. I had to reinstall WiseVector to fix it.

I got to see BAFS in action last night (with CD on High). I had transferred a pdf from tablet to laptop via Bluetooth. When I tried to open PDF TK Builder with the new pdf by drag and drop, WD popped up a message saying the program would be delayed up to 20 sec. while checking the cloud. The logs showed that WD uploaded the signed exe for analysis, probably because opening a file received from Bluetooth (which is very insecure) was considered suspicious. I was pleased to see it double-checking the exe before letting it run, without blocking it as a FP.

I think the Bleepingcomputer article about ConfigureDefender few days ago gave it very good exposure and the YouTube reviewer probably learnt about it from that article. I also personally met a person online who came to know about it from that article and now more people because of this video will start using it. It's really good to see Andy's hard work getting the recognition it deserves outside of our geeky forums 👌

It will since it's an easy to use SRP (H_C) plus a strong AV configuration tool(CD) using built in Microsoft defense mechanisms .
Probably will get popular among small business as time passes on.

My most favorite game (The Witcher 3) ever is made by polish developers based on Polish novels written by a Polish author, my most favorite 2 free system hardening programs (HC & CD) for Windows are made by our Polish developer Andy, one of my favorite and one of the world's best striker in world football (Robert Lewandowski, who also has a record of scoring 5 goals in 9 minutes) is a Polish guy who also along with his wife donated 1 million euros to combat corona virus, the testing lab "AVLab" who currently seems to be the most honest and open testing lab out there are also from Poland.
There's something good about the Polish genes it seems 😄

It is a simple coincidence, I think.:)
There were great times for Poland, when in union with Lithuania it was one of the largest political entities in Europe. But, it was a few hundred years ago.
It is worth mentioning that the Witcher is based on the books of Andrzej Saplkowski.:
The Witcher Penthalogy is one of my favorites from the year 1994.

Haha ok :)
You two share the same first name. I haven't read the books yet but it's on my wish list.
