Unauthorized Alien:… I’m using KIS, I like how you can block internet incoming/outgoing traffic for not safe files feature. It doesn’t work for Kaspersky Firewall though. Would Windows Firewall be recommended to use and disable Kaspersky’s instead of manually doing it myself?
I do want to use the blocking feature.
What settings should I change to harden Windows Firewall?
OK, first, firewalls are a bit like AVs, you can only have one running at a time, or they fight.
Windows Firewall ships with Windows, it costs you nothing extra. However, it has arguably one of the worst UIs in history, so…
When you install WFC it immediately reverses Microsoft’s Stupidity Settings and gives you Default Deny Outbound and Unrestricted Inbound — their philosophy is the same as mine and many other experts: a malware that can’t phone home is fundamentally
fneutered. It allows you to protect the firewall Rules and State from external tampering, so yes it can be hardened.
