    This for all if can't install tinywall installer with expired certificate (if no have trust on new prepacked installer) just make this 3 steps and all is done.
    create folder in C:\TWTemp here place installer TinyWallInstaller.msi
    now open cmd with admin and paste this cd /d C:\TWTemp and enter and next paste this command: msiexec /a TinyWallInstaller.msi /qb TARGETDIR=C:\TinyWall and enter and wait 5-15 seconds for unpacking
    now program is extracted no more wrong certificate and keep folder on secure place, now just open folder C:\TinyWall and start TinyWallInstaller.msi and follow step for install normal installer.

    Just use the 'Windows Defender' Firewall, its more powerful than most firewalls anyway.

    Windows Defender integrates with the system itself:
    It can identify tampering with the Registry or app settings.
    It works seamlessly with User Account Control requests.
    It can scrub malware from the Windows Recovery Environment.

    Afaik the windows firewall is not connected to windows defender.
    And any program can just willy-nilly change its settings.

    But it is not a firewall, as mentioned above.

    Isn't almost every commercial firewall using Windows Filtering Protocol? Then they are not much different to the internal program.
    And I said that every program can willi nilly set rules in the windows firewall, afaik. That is not secure at all.
