    No, not network routing rules, all that fluff left to your dedicated hardware device or CHX.

    Want basic opt in/out network functionality for processes & components via text configuration file.

    Example can be greatly expanded upon:

    # Action,Path+Regex,Checksum

    Allow,"C:\Program Files\Outlook Express\msimn.exe",091c14f4c71328d4316248a2421190de
    #Deny,"C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe",e7484514c0464642be7b4dc2689354c8

    Is there no such thing for Windows and why the HECK not? Would this not truly be set and forget? Wipe your hands of acknowledging popups requesting user intervention and unintuitive nuances, the GUI if you will. (Could see folks coding a lite frontend.)

    Obviously the mini driver will handle typical leak conditions, malicious inter-process communication, protection of firewall components, all that jazz.
