Remove a firewall rule

You can remove some of the firewall rules if necessary. However, you cannot modify some of the default General rules that appear in the list. You can view the settings of these rules by using the View option.

  6. In the Confirmation dialog box, click Yes.
  7. When you are done removing rules, click OK.
  8. In the Advanced Settings window, click OK.
To remove a Program rule
