Windows Firewall Control is a nifty little application which extends the functionality of the Windows Firewall and provides quick access to the most frequent options of Windows Firewall.
It runs in the system tray and allows user to control the native firewall easily without having to waste time by navigating to the specific part of the firewall. This is the best tool to manage the native firewall from Windows 8, Windows 7 and Windows Vista. Windows Firewall Control offers four filtering modes which can be switched with just a mouse click:
High FilteringAll outgoing connections are blocked. This setting blocks all attempts to connect to and from your computer. Medium FilteringOutgoing connections that do not match a rule are blocked. Only programs you allow can initiate outgoing connections. Low FilteringOutgoing connections that do not match a rule are allowed. You can block the programs you do not want to initiate outgoing connections. No FilteringWindows Firewall is turned off. Avoid using this setting unless you have another firewall running on your computer.
