    Is it possible to allow certain category programs via Windows Firewall on HP desktop?

    The Windows Firewall on my HP desktop is not even allowing some of the most trusted programs I was frequently using before. Is it possible to allow certain category programs via Windows Firewall on my gadget?

    Hi,

    Setting up the permission for programs to run or sites to visit can be done in Windows Firewall.

    Take the following steps.

    START>CONTROL PANEL>SYSTEM AND SECURITY>WINDOWS FIREWALL>ALLOWD PROGRAMS.

    You will find a list of programs ticked and unticked, tick whichever you want to allow and

    save, exit, reboot.

    Thanks.
