FYI: FirewallHardening doesn't include all LOLbins that is abused by malware in it's presets. I have personally manually added every single one and has so far not encountered a single false positive.

Will there be any false positives if I block them all?

Most users should apply only H_C Recommended. In this way, you can get 95% of the protection available via FirewallHardening with 5% of the required effort. Of course, you can fight for the last 5% if you like, but your effort can increase to 100%.:)
I know people who have many blocks related to explorer.exe.
