Does anyone know what the status is of WindowsFireWallControl in relation to Malware Bytes?
What @oldschool said. The website stil says "Free for everyone in the short term" and it seems in the malwarebytes forums they are still asking users with any questions about the product to email the developer.

They wanted to incorporate WFC into Malwarebytes AV, but firewalls are basically abandonware, so they just pay a negligible amount to dev to promote Malwarebytes.
I am pretty happy about it, considering what happened to products like Adwcleaner or CCleaner. WFC is a standalone product and the dev has now time to take care of it.

Gross. Every time I see WFC with that awful malwarebytes branding and colors, it reminds me why I never updated past 5.4.1.0.

Sometimes I check the recently blocked connections. I found there it blocked msmpeng.exe, which is Windows Defender Antimalware executable. It didn't even show a notification.
Why does it do that?

When I perform a deep cleanup, by stopping several services it depends on, WFC is unable to recover, unless I reinstall and restart.
