    Windows Firewall Control 4.7.3.0

    [​IMG]

    Windows Firewall Control is a powerful application which extends the functionality of the Windows Firewall and provides quick access to the most frequent options of Windows Firewall. It runs in the system tray and allows user to control the native firewall easily without having to waste time by navigating to the specific part of the firewall. This is the best tool to manage the native firewall from Windows 10, 8.1, 8, 7, Vista, Server 2008, Server 2012. Windows Firewall Control offers four filtering modes which can be switched with just a mouse click:

    High Filtering - All outbound and inbound connections are blocked. This setting blocks all attempts to connect to and from your computer.
    Medium Filtering - Outbound connections that do not match a rule are blocked. Only the programs that you allow can initiate outbound connections.
    Low Filtering - Outbound connections that do not match a rule are allowed. The user can block the programs he doesn't want to allow initiating outbound connections.
    No Filtering - Windows Firewall is turned off. Avoid using this setting unless you have another firewall running on your computer.

    Changes in version 4.7.3.0:

    • New: Added a new button in the View section to launch Connections Log from Rules Panel and vice versa. The keyboard shortcut Ctrl+Tab can be used to switch between these two windows too. If one is closed, Ctrl+Tab will launch the other one.
    • Improved: The list of custom authorized groups from the Security tab is now sorted alphabetically on saving. Unsorted inserted entries will be sorted on the next reopening of the Main Panel.
    • Fixed: Connections Log can be launched from the defined hotkey even if the program is locked with a password.
    • Fixed: Clear Log confirmation dialog appears in the center of the Rules Panel window instead of the Connections Log window.

    @davhag49 I can assure you that Alexandru Dicu improves WFC constantly and for me (I've been using it for a few years now) it works like a charm. The point is WFC works rather as a helper to in-build Windows Firewall so it may have some restrictions that can't be avoid. I'd suggest you to install it once again and check if it lives up to your expectations :) I think it's worth to give it another try ;)

    Windows Firewall Control 4.9.0.0

    What's new in version 4.9.0.0 (14.12.2016)

    - Updated: The notifications system was redesigned in order to allow defining
    exceptions. The High notification level was removed since the new notifications
    system can be configured to achieve the same results. The existing modes were
    renamed.
    - Fixed: In Properties dialog, the local addresses field should not accept custom
    keywords like the remote addresses field since this is not allowed not even from
    WFwAS.
    - Fixed: In Properties dialog it is not possible to select "Services only". Opening
    such a rule result in an empty selection in Services combo box.
    - Fixed: Duplicate authorized group names can be added if the case is changed.
    - Updated: The user manual was updated to reflect the new changes.

    Windows Firewall Control 4.9.3.0

    instead of the shortcut in 'C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup'
    folder.
    - Fixed: Importing policies from network shares does not work. The same applies when
    exporting a partial or a full policy is made on a network location.
    - Fixed: In Connections Log, 'Local' has the meaning of 'Source' and the 'Remote' has
    the meaning of 'Destination'. In Connections Log, Local Ports/Addresses were renamed

    - Updated: The user manual was updated to reflect the new changes.

    4.9.8.0 (13.05.2017)

    which is extracted in the TEMP folder. The UAC prompt is now displayed for the same

    netsh command.
    - Fixed: The user manual file is not deleted at uninstallation if WFC is installed
    into a folder different than the default proposed one.

    File size: 1.52 MB
    MD5: 4ce287bc484aa2f19d6eb590744844f5



    What's new in version 4.9.9.2 (27.07.2017)

    - Improved: Added tooltips and color indicators in the activation dialog to make the
    activation process more intuitive.
    - Fixed: Removing hundreds of rules at once in Rules Panel makes the window unresponsive
    until the action is actually finished.
    - Fixed: There is no progress indication in Rules Panel for long running tasks, like
    when importing a large partial policy file or when creating duplicate rules for multiple
    rules at once.
    - Fixed: The confirmation dialog which is displayed when "Blocked connections" check
    box is unchecked in Connections Log is not displayed in the center of Connections Log
    but in the center of Rules Panel.
    - Fixed: When the program is locked, depending on where the mouse pointer is placed
    over the unlock button, the tooltip still displays "Lock..." instead of "Unlock...".
    - Fixed: The Local Addresses combo box from the Properties dialog should not contain
    any tooltip since this field does not support special keywords.
