You should not struggle with this enhancement. The new "enhanced mode" is by default disabled when you update to the last version. This means WFC will work the same it worked in the past. Just because we are doing a brainstorming, it doesn't mean that you have to do any extra work in configuring your rules. When I say to avoid generic rules, I refer to the ones created by the users by mistake. I receive a lot of full policies on email to check them and I've seen a lot of these kind of rules. Windows Firewall has his own generic rules but they are targeted to specific services, protocols, ports. I didn't refer to them. Those ones should be left untouched. The point of these discussions is to improve WFC. Thanks to this forum, WFC got a lot more features and many bugs were fixed. WFC works the same way it did in the past, even if the last posts are more technical. I wouldn't recommend to use an older version. For this reason, there is no repository with previous versions. I will make the proposed changes and I will publish a new version soon. The enhanced mode will be removed and partially integrated into the existing modes. Thank you all, for your valuable feedback.
