Windows firewall is one such feature, I would like to remain disabled since the time it got added to windows, as it had used to cause various problem in LAN networking with other PC’s and blocking internet access for some programs and other issues etc.
Windows Firewall Control is a small freeware app which runs in the system tray, provides almost all the useful options of windows firewall like enabling or disabling firewall in very less mouse clicks, applying certain firewall rules, applying a firewall policy etc. as shown in the image below.
In order to configure any option related to windows firewall just right click the system tray icon and then select the desired option. This app seems to be portable application, and works with almost all the operating system including windows 7, we have just tested it in windows 7 32 bit ultimate edition.
