Windows Firewall Notifier 1.6.2

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

What's new in this version:

  • Fixed the previous fix as it was still not working properly.
  • NB: I advise to remove any global svchost.exe rule created with the previous version to allow a proper service redetection.

I thought the Windows 7 firewall could already do this, but had to be managed through MMC?

The Windows Firewall doesn't do outbound notifications and doesn't block all outbound connections by default. This lets you control it with notifications when an app is blocked so you can unblock it instantly. Windows Firewall Control from sphinx soft is better IMHO.
