Has anyone checked if the v3 firewall is capable of preventing applications from accesing the internet?
I have played around with the settings, as I wasn’t being asked if a program should be allowed access. I tried using the ‘Define a New Blocked Application’ to stop Firefox from accessing any web pages, and the rule is still supposedly running, even though I have posted this. I included rules to block all TCP/UDP requests and another to stop all IP requests, and have moved the rule to the top of the list in ‘Network Security Policy’ and to the bottom. I have set all the ‘Process Access Rights’ to Ask in the ‘Computer Security Policy’, just in case it made a difference, but still the same.
EDIT: I am running ESET NOD32 AntiVirus v3. It looks as though all internet traffic is being sent through ‘ekrn.exe’, which has trusted access. Not sure if this is an AV problem or firewall.
