do not be the type of person that obsesses if Windows is broke in some unknown, hidden way and weakening your security
that is needless worries

this is always the risk of tweaking
notice "What failed: tcpip.sys"

just because Microsoft makes all of it tweakable does not mean it will work once you tweak it
first rule of Windows
it was an update issue the system reboot with updating process completion not because Windows firewall rule i think

you cannot know accurately unless you collect memory dump and provide it to someone with the symbol files for dump analysis
what crashed app is not always accruate
also what the OS displays on the BSOD screen is not always accurate

here is what alexandru (WFC dev) uses as his WF rule set
notice what is only allowed are

browser
DNS
skype
network shares (local network)
printer (local network)

notice he has a rule for Windows Update but it is temporarily disabled
he deletes everything else
and he does not torrent i wonder why ? :unsure:

this is all that he needs to use his system
he likely using static ip address for his system
you would have to ask him how he has router configured

you can ask karly pados (TinyWall dev) and Alexandru (WFC dev) about the services you speak and different firewall strategies for all the crap Microsoft ships with Windows they both helpful on subject matter

so you are already done trying to learn and configure Windows Firewall for yourself ? :unsure:
FYI alexandru's rules are going to block networking for all your installed apps
his rules only allow browser and skype apps
you can disable IGMP
