When attempting to remove an application rule I get the warning: “You need to use “Predefined Firewall Policies” to delete this item.”
Now, this would make sense if the rule I was trying to delete was part of a predefined firewall policy. It’s not, so it doesn’t make sense. The rules are not grayed out, and the corresponding application is being treated as “custom.” And no, I made no predefined policy called “custom.”
If I double click on the rule, I can edit the rule. If I double click on the corresponding application, I can remove rules from within the “Application Network Access Control” child-window. But I cannot remove them from within the Network Security Policy window (as per the incorrect warning).
I am using the latest version COMODO Internet Security 4.0.135239.742, and have the same error.
Here is my workaround:
Create a dummy application rule, i.e for a Notepad.exe
Drag the to be deleted rule to this application rule
Delete the this application node, it will delete the rule(s) within this subtree
For EricJH, you can simulate it by creating a rule in the section All Applications for instance.
I noticed that deleting a Network Zone will delete all the rules assigned to this zone.
Suggestion for the development team: Would it make sense to have the name or ID of which rule that each line of the Firewall event refers to? The same thing for the log viewer. I have difficulty to figure out which rule had blocked or allowed the event, especially when we have many rules set. Maybe I should create a new thread, but a bit lazy to
