It's 2007. A firewall should come with rules for the most popular applications out of the box. Kaspersky does this. Comodo does this. Many other do this as well. The ESS firewall does not even have rules for some Windows processes. I do not like the Automatic mode because it allows everything to connect to the outside. But, I should not have to click "Allow" for the most popular applications for a week to have a decent setup running. I understand that populating the database is a major effort, but Eset, you have this forum to support you. We can provide you with the rules. You can approve them. This setup works well for other firewall developers.
