1.0.0 – For all versions of Windows
The point of this program is to make adding/removing programs to/from your Windows firewall easier than ever.
This program will add a right-click option to all .exe and .com programs, allowing you to allow, block or remove a program from the Windows firewall in 1 click.
When you add a program to the firewall, all rules with the same file path will be removed first, and then a new single rule is added. This can greatly help when a user has multiple rules for a program and they don’t realize it. A lot of times, those rules can conflict and create problems. Now all those extra rules are removed during the process.
Also, when you allow a program through the firewall, the settings in the rule are to allow any protocol, any port, and allow edge transport. The settings in the rule are to let the program be fully allowed through.
Aside from allowing programs through, you can also block them if need be.
The same thing happens, all current rules that point to the same program are removed, and a new rule is added that blocks the program on every protocol and every port.
And just for those users who like to keep things clean, there is also an option to remove all rules for a program from the firewall.
A nice feature to have when you are uninstalling a game or program and don’t want the rules in the firewall anymore.
All 3 of these options are just one click.
You can also select multiple .exe and .com files at once to make things even faster. All done through Windows Explorer.
