Using Windows 7 Premium 64 bit.
I learned that the Windows 7 firewall also has outbound capability that is not turned on by default and that it can be turned on in its "Advanced settings". I've gone to that screen but do not see how to turn outbound on and I certainly do not know how to write outbound rules.
I used Zone Alarm in XP and that was easy to use. When a program tried to send something out, ZA asked me if I should permit it, this time only, or always.
Can I do something similar in Windows 7's firewall?
So my questions are:
a) how *exactly* do I turn on (or off) Windows 7' outbound firewall?
b) Is there a simple way to write the outbound rules for the Windows 7 firewall without being a programmer or security expert?
