Windows 7: Win7, Skype + multiple Firewall entries

Eureka! Your screen grab(s) showed me the way.

I was in Monitoring > Firewall rather than Inbound Rules. Going to Inbound Rules I was able to selectively delete redundant entries.

Thank you much.

Deleting them has never been the issue (for me anyway). It's that even if you delete them... they'll just come back as you use the program again.

Is that what everyone else is seeing too?

My problem was most noticeable with Skype and it turns out that every time I installed an update it added another entry. Just using the program hasn't added any.

I think going forward though, I'll probably periodically reset the firewall just in the cause of housekeeping.
