    How to 'temporarily' block (so can unblock in case needed to run an application etc) Java with Privatefirewall (PFW, by PWI Inc), or other ?

    Currently have javaw.exe, java.exe, & jp2launcher.exe set for 'Deny' with PFW.

    And have 'Java Deployment Toolkit 8.0.730.2' & 'Java(TM) Platform SE 8 U73' set for 'Ask to Activate' with Firefox.

    Thoughts ?

    Thank you !

    My recollection is that on the Applications tab there is help on the right side. I think it said there you can place a temporary block/allow. That leaves the rules in place, and that temporary setting takes precedence.
