Windows Firewall Control

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.
