This time, When I clicked on programs, I got the blue screen. Luckly I was in shadow mode
What Windows version, build number, 32/64 bit? (Maybe ISO file's name? So I'll install it in VM.)

Which Fort's installation package was used? (windows-x86.exe or windows10-x86_64.exe?)

How to reproduce the crash?

Any error logs in the Fort firewall/logs/ folder?

Please send the memory dump file to nodir.temir@gmail.com

There won't be any log files or dump files. When in Shadow mode. Nothing is saved after reboot.
I installed the 86 visual C files because installing the 64 version would not work.
I used the windows10-x86_64.exe install file.
I opened the GUI and clicked programs and got the blue screen.

@ticklemefeet I can't to reproduce the crash:
- Start existing Windows 11 in VM
- Uninstall existing Fort Firewall
- Install Shadow Defender 1.5.0.726, turn on Shadow Mode and Reboot
- Install `FortFirewall-3.6.0-windows10-x86_64.exe` and open its Programs window

Maybe you also installed other security programs or antivirus?

> I opened the GUI and clicked programs and got the blue screen.

Can you please get a screenshot of the BSOD?

I just tried installing again and clicking on programs and it seems to be working fine now. Fingers crossed
