I switched to Windows 8 yesterday and installed CIS 5.12 as usual.
My problem is that I don’t receive any notifications od alerts regarding any applications trying to access the internet. Absolutely every traffic is allowed even under custom policy behavior. No restrictions at all.
I checked the Windows Firewall and noticed that the Windows FW was still running and I disabeld it hoping CIS will “take over” now, but nothing happend.
I thought maybe all applications are considered “Metro Apps” and deleted the Applications Rule for them - still no effect. I deleted every Global Rule and Application Rule just to see If I get a pop-up regarding any application trying to access the internet. E.g. Steam, Dayz Commander and certain games all got through like there is no FW at all.
Is the FW really broken or am I doing using it wrong?
