    Hi all, I wonder if there is any way to block certain programs and ports in Windows built-in firewall. It seems to me I can unblock/allow connections already in the list, but not add new ones that I want to block.

    Thank you!

    Thank you for your tips cybercore. I have had both ZoneAlarm and Comodo installed before (well, not at the same time, duh!) but as I recall ZoneAlarm worked fine under XP but isn't (as yet) compatible with Windows7 as far as I know.

    Comodo I threw out because it was forever warning and asking about stuff, nagging me to death.
    I mean, if the Internet is that full of nasty stuff, I'd be better off yanking the connection.
    But I'll try the first tip :cool:
