Thanks for this information!

I just didn't find out if it also offers more languages... German for example... ;D
But actually I'm happy with my Windows Firwall...

This firewall has also some quiet good results at Matousec's Security Challenge... (see the picture)

kind regards
onlysomeone



EDIT: oops... forgot to add the picture...

Thanks. Excellent find. Just finished installing it on one of the Windows 7 systems.
I noticed that this also works on Windows 7 64 bit systems. Very easy to install and use.
Seems to totally hide my WIFII

After an initial test and after the first reboot after install, I've removed it. :(
It tied my system into knots.  Everything crawled and it took forever to finally get it un-installed.
Now the system is back to normal (using the Windows 7 firewall).

Windows Defender
