I was in the middle of the automatic update of our banking programm to a new version. This process stalled for some reason. All else too. I couldnt even get the taks manager up showing.
Eventually, I had to press the reset button on Win 8.1 64bit…
The the boot was strange since not all autostart programs were loaded. I rebooted.
Then all was fine but lots of firewall rule pop ups appered. I had a clue and did a look at the custom fire wall application rules:
ALL EMPTY ??!
How can I, if at all, get them back restored without reapplying a whole system imaged since I think to know that these rules are stored in the registry. At least I think this was the case some years ago.
But why the heck is it possible at all that the can be wiped?
