Windows Firewall Control offers four filtering modes which can be switched with just a mouse click:
High Filtering – All outbound and inbound connections are blocked. This setting blocks all attempts to connect to and from your computer.
Medium Filtering – Outbound connections that do not match a rule are blocked. Only programs you allow can initiate outbound connections.
Low Filtering – Outbound connections that do not match a rule are allowed. The user can block the programs he doesn’t want to initiate outbound connections.
No Filtering – Windows Firewall is turned off. Avoid using this setting unless you have another firewall running on your computer.
