Windows Firewall Control + KeyMaker

Windows Firewall Control Free

Windows Firewall Control is a nifty little 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. Windows Firewall Control offers four filtering modes which can be switched with just a mouse click. It is free to use, registered users will get the advantage of learning mode which provides notifications for outgoing blocked connections. This is the best tool to manage the native firewall from Windows 8, Windows 7 and Windows Vista. Windows Firewall Control offers four filtering modes which can be switched with just a mouse click:

Low Filtering – Outgoing connections that do not match a rule are allowed. You can block the programs you do not want to initiate outgoing connections.
Medium Filtering – Outgoing connections that do not match a rule are blocked. Only programs you allow can initiate outgoing connections.
High Filtering – All outgoing connections are blocked. This setting blocks all attempts to connect to and from your computer.
No Filtering – Windows Firewall is turned off. Avoid using this setting unless you have another firewall running on your computer.

Registered Users Features:
• Learning Mode which provides notifications for blocked outgoing connections.
• Search for executable files in a user defined folder and create new rules for the selected ones from the result list.

– New: A new section for configuring the advanced notifications settings was added in the Notifications tab. The new settings can be used to tweak the notifications system regarding the notifications that should be displayed or not.
– Updated: The notifications levels were changed back. In Medium notification level the notifications will be displayed no matter of the folder, and the notifications for System and svchost.exe will be skipped. The notifications for System and svchost.exe are displayed only on High notification level.
– Updated: The inbound rules with edge traversal set to ‘Defer to user’ are not set as read only anymore in WFC. Even if the update on them may not work in all cases, the user has at least the ability to change the Group of the rule so that the rule becomes editable in WFwAS.
– Fixed: Duplicating a rule with the port set to keywords as IPHTTPS or Ply2Disc does not have the Duplicate word in the rule name. Also, these kind of rules can’t be edited because IPHTTPS or Ply2Disc keywords are not recognized by WFC.
– Fixed: In Windows 10, rules with local ports that use keywords are retrieved with an extra ‘,’ making the rules invalid when trying to edit them.

• Microsoft .NET Framework version 4.0
• Compatible with all 32bit and 64bit versions of Windows 8.1, Windows 8, Windows 7 and Vista.
