click outbound rules and follow the prompts, you will have to navigate to the exe of the application you are blocking. same for inbound rules,
if you dont want updates!

it depends if avast overules the firewall, i use MSE which runs alongside windows firewall, avast may use its own firewall,i dont know, however there must be a similar setting in avast to block a prog ,

edit: just had a google,it seems avast shield overules windows firewall,so blocked programs still get through.
would you consider using MSE.
if so be sure to completely rmove avast, there is probably an Avast removal tool if you google it
