Windows Firewall Control 4.9.9.1

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 4.9 :

- New: The installer was updated and does not use anymore a second installer file which is extracted in the TEMP folder. The UAC prompt is now displayed for the same file, not for the extracted file from the TEMP folder.
- Updated: The profile changing is now made through Windows Firewall API instead of netsh command.
- Fixed: The user manual file is not deleted at uninstallation if WFC is installed into a folder different than the default proposed one.
- Updated: The troubleshooting section of the user manual was updated.
