Knowing and using the software properly is step one in any type of diagnosis...I hope you realize this program is not a firewall.
How about restrict his computer to only access certain websites.

I have been using it on two computers since...
There's "conflicting" opinions about most things.
Bottom line is that the Windows firewall is a very good firewall and when combined with a...
Why, because you don't like what it states.
...by feel are you serious!!?
I am tired of hearing this as an excuse for memory hungry apps.
Not Linux but FreeBSD based...FreeNAS.
This is going nowhere...I'm out.
Dude, are you serious...this is your explanation for your less than "crystal clear" statement that I quoted you on originally!
I realize you were...
Apparently only crystal clear to you.
You stated you want to view recent connections and then create an allow or deny rules?!!
I think you need to hire a an IT specialist to setup you infrastructure.
There is just so much you can hope to achieve from an online post in a...

By the way, this is exactly what WFN does...
The winxp firewall doesn't block outbound connections (only inbound), therefore it is almost useless.
Why not just run use "netstat" from a command prompt for active connections?
I am sure you can write code that splits up the program and maybe even use a fake name so it registers differently on the display.
But how can...
Windows Firewall Notifier (WFN):
1- Low RAM usage (and only when notifying...out of memory if no notifications)
2- Runs only when the windows...
Dude, what on earth are you talking about...Task Manager displays all you mentioned and is the default program for checking running application stats!
The installation package file size is not an indicator as to RAM usage.
The only way to know for sure is to run the software in a typical...
AlexC, glad that you got it squared away!
Don't forget to backup your firewall profile once you have configured all the settings to your liking:...
Never heard of an issue like that with WFN.
I still don't follow what you mean by "disabling of monitoring of the services".
I don't have...
I don't follow...services monitoring? What is that?
How about the Windows 7 firewall with one of the front ends:
Windows Firewall Notifier
Windows Firewall Control
...and a few others.
Some connections are getting blocked. If you disable the firewall and it all works well, there is something getting blocked somewhere.
You didn't state if outbound connections are blocked.
If you have outbound connections blocked, I would recommend one of the front ends.
