Are you on a public network or in a private network? Have you checked that the program was disallowed to connect to your private/public network? Be sure that, when creating firewall rules, the program should not be allowed to make incoming and outgoing connections on public and private networks.

is there a option to let the Windows 7 firewall pop when a new program wants to connect to the net with a allow and deny ?

By default, Windows notifies you if a program wants to connect to Private/Public networks and if you want to allow/disallow.

Click and type the word "Firewall". Click "Windows Firewall with Advanced Security". It is there where you can set inbound and outbound rules for a program. For setting inbound rules, click "Inbound Rules" on the left pane. On the right pane, choose "New Rule...". Follow the onscreen instructions in the New Inbound Rule wizard. The same applies to outbound rules.

Read the following tutorial for more information.

By default, Windows notifies you if a program wants to connect to Private/Public networks and if you want to allow/disallow.

Navigate to the following location:

Control Panel > System and Security > Windows Firewall

On the left pane, click "Restore Defaults". Click YES on UAC prompt.

The firewall notification doesn't really notify you all the time. Sometimes it notifies you, sometimes it doesn't so you'll have to manually allow/disallow a program to connect to a Private/Public network.

UAC shouldn't be turned OFF. It should always be set at the default (recommended) level or at a maximum level to ensure protection from unwanted changes made by programs.
