Config tool crashes, cannot allow firewall accessFollow

I just downloaded the new update and for some reason I need to run this game in windowed mode first time after each update so I can click on the stupid firewall popup, while the game is running, so the game gets internet access. Normally after that I switch back to full screen mode and everything is fine, but now I can't go into windowed mode and Mcaffee won't accept it even after I alt-tab out of the menu and click allow, it has to be actively running in windowed mode to actually be set.

Anyone have a work around for this so I can get something done ingame today? Was looking forward to fishing tonight and wasn't expecting this patch in the middle of my playtime. Well the day ended 3 hours ago so that is moot, but still like to fish or do a leve before I go sleep...

Help?

I had this same problem in Beta. I tried adding the various programs to my firewall but it's no good, it's a process I have to give access and this process starts running after I clicked ok, which is changed to yes with this update, that is how far I got...

After that it will just give a error about the lobby server being unavailable, when in fact it is being blocked by the firewall which is waiting in the background for me to accept it. And when I alt tab to accept it, the direct x popup is faster killing the process I'm trying to accept :(

I'm out for bed now I guess but I'll check this tomorrow hoping someone knows a fix for this so I can get back to fishing, I wanted to get to 40 this weekend but that ain't happening now. Only so many fish you can fish up and get sp from in an hour.
