Windows Firewall Control 3.3.0.3

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. 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:

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

Program Features:

  • Just one small executable file. All features are packed in the same file.
  • Full support for executing tasks from standard user accounts.
  • Intuitive and easy accessible interface in the system tray.
  • Allow or block a program to connect to the internet with just one mouse click.
  • Shell integration into the right click context menu of the executable files.
  • Quick access to edit Windows Firewall rules directly from the program interface.
  • Choose if you want the program to start at user logon.
  • Import and export the policy of the program.
  • Protection to unauthorized uninstallation.
  • Possibility to restore previous settings at uninstallation.
  • Check for a new version from the program interface.
  • And many more... Just give it a try.

Registered Users Features:

  • Learning Mode which provides notifications for blocked outgoing connections.
  • Lock the current state of the program and Windows Firewall with password.
  • Reset a forgotten password used to lock the current state of the program.

Best tool is this: http://www.sphinx-soft.com/Vista/order.html since it provides visual+sound outbound notifications in the free version.

I agree, but wouldn't pay for it! This one does http://www.sphinx-soft.com works great and you don't even have to have the built in firewall enabled to use it, which is how I use it!! Mostly used just for outbound notifications.

$10 USD for the full version of this, the linked one with the same sort of capabilities is very expensive by comparison though 1/5 of the cost!!!

Wouldn't pay for either of these.

Meh, I don't mind paying ten bucks for it, i'm not that tight Plus I do need the extras that both free versions miss out.
