About WFC:

Product Overview

√ Microsoft Windows 7 and Windows Vista have already a built-in default, free and powerfull firewalls, but unfortunately, they lack a simple interface to define own simple rules and can be difficult sometimes to configure them the right way. Windows Firewall Control is a nifty little application developed to provide quick access to the most frequent options used from Windows Firewall. It sits in the system tray and allows user to control the Windows Firewall easily without having to waste time by navigating to the specific part of the Firewall. Options to enable or disable firewall, access Windows Firewall and it’s Advanced Security are all given in the system tray right-click context menu. It extends the default functionality of the native firewall by integrating the program into the context menu of the executable files and by showing to the user the notifications of outgoing blocked connections. This is the best tool to manage the native firewall in Windows 7 and Windows Vista.
√ Windows Firewall Control offers access to four filtering modes, each with their own status icon in system tray, and different functionality....

Windows Firewall Control 3.0.0.2

What's new in version 3.0.0.2
- New: menu item for checking for updates, to see if a new version of the program is available for download.
- New: customize the rule to be created directly from the notification about blocked connection.

install this new version, you must activate the program again using a different activation code.

RE: Windows Firewall Control 3.0.0.2

Windows Firewall Control 3.0.0.3
√ Fixed: default installation folder on 64bit versions of Windows, changed to SysWOW64 instead of System32.
√ New: End Process option when you are viewing current network connections in the program.

Now the explanation. Version 3.0.0.2 is compiled to use x86 native code, and because of that, on 64bit operating systems, the default installation must be in SysWOW64 instead of System32. This update fixes the problems regarding 64bit operating systems. Also, this version can update an old installation, without requesting closing the older version that is running. Just run the new wfc.exe from any location on your HDD, and follow instructions.

If you use version 3.0.0.2 you can use the new feature "Check for Updates". If not, you can download the new version from the website.

Please do not hesitate to report any other problems regarding WFC, and I will fix them in a short time.
Thank you for your support.

√ Fixed: system tray icon sometimes is not appearing at Windows startup, but the program is running in Task Manager.
√ Improved: uninstall procedure complains about language pack not found when Learning Mode is enabled, until an option is selected for uninstall.
√ New: added support for the following languages for Learning Mode: portuguese (pt-PT and pt-BR) and dutch (nl-BE).

Please do not hesitate to report any other problems regarding WFC, and I will fix them in a short time.
