I've been running GlassWire on my system and just got the alert,  "Application Info Changed - the application version changed from 6.2.10586 to 6.2.10586.35" for Wireless Background Task.

 

I suspect this is what's fixing the WiFi woes that so many have been having lately.

Nice catch!

 

How do you like GlassWire?

Do you find it useful?  If so, for what?

Do you get many notifications of version changes?

usasma,

 

          It's too early to say "how I like" GlassWire because it's really in its earliest stages of data collection.

 

          I have found it very useful in terms of seeing what's actually making connections out to the internet, how often, and, as you noted, notifications of version changes on software it's been monitoring when that occurs.

 

          I don't get tons of notifications, period.  Most were within the first few hours to day or so as various things were connecting.  For those who believe that Windows 10 telemetry is this endless stream of data it quickly puts that idea to bed, particularly if you've done the minor settings tweaking to disable the Cortana service and other options you either don't use or don't want data gathering from.

 

          I'll be curious to see what patterns emerge over the coming weeks and months.

My last 2 weeks of use of glasswire I noticed an abnormal amount of dns resets sometimes as many as 5 or 6 a day. Then win 10 crashed and I been dealing with that instead.  You may notice a lot of connections to akamie servers.

Thanks for the info.  I'll give GlassWire a try as I'm able to get some time to work with it.
