    Hello everyone,

    I'm using Windows 7 Ultimate with Trend Micro Internet Security 2012 (TM) installed. TM hasn't its firewall, so windows firewall is enabled. I prefer WF to control outbound connections. When I set WF to block all outbound connections and then create rules for applications to access the Internet (browsers, email client), they can't go out until I allow outbound connection for coreServiceSell.exe that is Trend Micro service. But then all the applications get unrestricted access the Internet that, obviously, means outbound connections aren't controlled by firewall. I guess the problem is in TM rules. Could anyone please help with the rules for TM?

    Many thanks in advance.

    o_O What the hell did you just say? Trend Micro Internet Security hasn't its Firewall? I take it from that, that you chose not to install that component :doubt: or you just disabled it? If you just disabled it, I sugest you unintall Trend Micro, and then reinstall with the Firewall Component unchecked so it doesn't install.

    oh! and I noticed this is your first post, So Hello fastriver ;)

    It is correct - Trend Micro Internet Security doesn't have a firewall of its own. It has a "firewall helper" that adds some extra functionality to the Windows Firewall.
