Your help is very much appreciated

Hi pedropete,

In “Safe” mode for the firewall,all applications that where on the pc at the time of installation are considered “Safe” and are therefore allowed internet access and a rule will be created for them in Firewall/Advanced/Network Security Policy.You can go there to see what rules have allready been created and to “Edit” some if you wish.
If you set the Firewall to “Custom policy”,you will receive an alert for any application which doesn`t have a rule set up for it in “Application Rules”
Try removing a rule for one of your applications,(Apply to all windows) then try to access the net with it.You should receive an alert,if you want it to be created in “Application Rules” then check “Remeber my answer”.
