Windows Firewall Control extends the default firewall included with every Windows version. It can be integrated into Windows Shell and simplifies every operation you have made in Windows Firewall.

Windows Firewall Control provides four filtering presets from „No filtering” to „High filtering” and runs quietly runs in system tray.

It can be protected with a password denying any unauthorized uninstallation and it automatically deletes every automatically added ruls outside Windows Firewall Control. It has quick access to customizable firewall rules directly from the Windows Firewall Control interface, with option to set local and remote ports, or even delete them right away.

You have multiple ways to create, edit and delete firewall rules and also to view recently blocked connections and create new rules from the logs: inbound and outbound.

It is a must-have application for those that stick with Windows Firewall and want to obtain more from this software. Network administrators will love it also because of its options and low impact on system resources.

What's New in Windows Firewall Control 5.1 :

- New: 'Secure Rules' was rewritten from scratch. When enabled, this feature will prohibit adding, modifying or removing firewall rules from outside of WFC.

- New: A new global hot key can be defined in Options tab to toggle Secure Rules state.
- Fixed: If the uninstaller is launched multiple times, the dialog is displayed multiple times instead of focusing the already running instance of it.
- Improved: When choosing a custom notification sound for the notifications, the dialog will now open by default in 'C:\Windows\Media' folder.
- Improved: Various user interface improvements.
- Updated: The WFC recommended rules contain now some inbound rules required for accessing the computers from the local network.
