Protected rules are redundant after v3 reinstall?

Postby ouncurvike » Fri Jul 28, 2017 6:24 am

A bunch of my protected rules are showing up as redundant (see rules below). It mostly seems to be because of some new Apple-related 'Any Process' rules.

This might not have anything to do with it... but I recently installed v4 & then re-installed v3 (I didn't know v4 was a paid upgrade). Did some new v4 protected rules not get deleted?
