Can not add exception to Windows firewall in windows 7

When I try to add an exception I get an error message that says "Windows Firewall can not ad "program name" to the list of exceptions. I currently have no exceptions in the list and can not ad any program to the exceptions list. Whats happening?

I am trying to ad firefox to the exceptions list. Currently I am randomly loosing internet access. The modem remains connected to the router but IP4 says no internet access. If I turn off Windows Firewall and then click on Windows Network Connection then Status then diagnose it fixes the problem temporarily. Therefore its clear that it is a firewall problem, furthermore I should be able to ad any program to the exceptions list, I can not add any program.

Please download Farbar Service Scanner (FSS) and run it on the computer with the issue.
  • Make sure the following options are checked:
  • Internet Services
  • Windows Firewall
  • System Restore
  • Security Center/Action Center
  • Windows Update
  • Windows Defender
  • Other Services
  • Press "Scan".
  • It will create a log (FSS.txt) in the same directory the tool is run.
  • Please copy and paste the log to your reply.

Problems solved. This was a virus. The only program that could detect it was Malwarebytes Anti-rootkit. Malwarebytes : Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit

Had to run it several times. Everything seems to be running smoothly now. Thanks for the assistance.
