Sek,

Just to be safe, I would recommend to do a full scan of your system with Malwarebytes free (if not the one you already have) to see if it finds anything.

You might also run a sfc /scannow command to see if it may be able to find and fix any bad system files that may be responsible.

I'm afraid that I don't know amything about iTunes other than a lot of people have issues with it.

Shawn,

Thanks for this very helpful tutorial bro.

One query-- Can I add an entire folder to the Firewall Exception list such that all incoming/outbound connections from any of the files inside that folder are blocked? I know such is possible with Windows Defender. Please advise. Thanks.

Hello Troy,

Sorry, but only programs/applications can be added to the Windows Firewall exception list.

I'm trying to add a game through the firewall called warframe but when ever I can't even click it...

I already know how to add programs through, I've done it in the pass with other games but for some reason now I can't even click on the firewall settings or anything related to firewalls, I click it and nothing happens, and yes I am on an admin account, it's the only account there is on my computer

Hello mochilli, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Were you able to click on the Change settings button from step 4 to elevate (get a UAC prompt) and then be able to add the exception for the game's .exe file?

Do you have a 3rd party firewall program installed that may have disabled Windows Firewall?
