    I'm an avid Steam user and have a lot of their games installed. Each time a patch is deployed I have to yes/no the permission on my firewall all over again. The first few times I was okey with it, but now it's like every week I get a new yes/no permission on them and I'm getting fairly sick of clicking yes to each one.

    Is their a way to set my permissions to yes everything located in my:
    C:\Program Files\Steam
    folder? So each time a new patch comes out it will auto yes and I don't get nagged about it again :doubt:

    Perhaps editing the existing rule and making it independent from application would do the trick.

    i don't think creating a rule will work as FW will alert, as it should, whenever a previously allowed app changes after being patched

    Sorry, I understand now what you mean. Adding the appropriate file(s) to the exclusion list in the Application modification detection section of the firewall setup should work.
