WFP driver


Dieser Artikel behandelt AdGuard für Windows, einem multifunktionalen Werbeblocker, der Ihr Gerät auf Systemebene schützt. To see how it works, download the AdGuard app

To filter netwrok traffic, AdGuard uses a network driver. There are two options: TDI driver and WFP driver. While WFP driver is generally preferrable and is enabled by default for all newer Windows OS versions (Windows 8 and newer), it can potentially cause compatibility problems, especially with some antiviruses. These problems and subsequent errors can be very different in each case.

If you encounter a problem that you suspect might be caused by this, you can always switch to the older but more stable TDI network driver. To do so:

  1. Go to Settings → Network.

  2. Disable WFP driver as it’s done in this picture:
