I've read a few threads over the past week or so, I still don't think I've managed to get some settings right. I just want NIS2009 to automatically block every program that I have not allowed. If I want to unblock it I should be just able to go to the program control section and change the tab to allow. Also, in silent mode, it seems to allow everything that doesn't have a rule for it. How do I make it autoblock everything without a rule?? Thanks for the input..
