Windows Firewall Notifier 1.3.0

Windows Firewall Notifier is a third party program for Windows 7 and Vista that extends the default Windows embedded firewall behavior, allowing to handle outgoing connections.

This application only uses existing Windows features, enabling some of them when first launched:

  • Enables the Windows embedded firewall
  • Sets the firewall to block both inbound and outbound connections for which no rule exists
  • Enables the default Windows firewall inbound connection notification
  • Enables the Windows firewall outbound connections logging (disabled by default)
  • Creates a scheduled task linked to the Windows firewall event log entries, allowing Windows Firewall Notifier to be launched when needed only

A word of warning: this will turn on blocking of outbound connections - a good thing surely, but it means it also blocks Windows Update and MSE updates (at least - possibly more), not so good.

You'll need to manually add rules to allow them through. See here for what you'll need: (NB I don't seem to have the BITS service it mentions so I didn't bother with that but I now have working Windows/MSE updates),
