I have blocked all outbound traffic in the advanced firewall window and have tried to make a rule to allow Internet Explorer and Firefox through but with no joy. I have looked through previous posts but couldnt find an answer.
I have tried the Sphinx software but I donít really need that or really want it. I just want to let browsers, anti virus and windows update through. I used to let windows update on vista through by allowing svchost through but only allowing the update service.
I allowed TCP port 80 through but that just letís most things through.
The process I did was create a new outbound rule, choose program path, choose allow (not block by default), apply to all profiles and then name the rule. But it just wont go through so I am wondering what I am doing/not doing?!
I have also tried the normal firewall window (control panel, windows firewall) and let firefox through but still didnt work for me.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you :-)
