Windows 10: Windows firewall keeps blocking chrome and itunes

    Windows firewall keeps blocking chrome and itunes


    Hi

    Recently i keep getting the message "Windows Firewall has blocked some features off this app" everytime I start the laptop and its always for Google chrome and iTunes. I have added the apps in the allowed area of windows firewall but the popup keeps coming back as if the apps did not save in the allowed box for windows firewall.

    I have ran a virus scan both in safe mode and normal windows. I had recently updated to windows 10 anniversary, but I reverted back to the "previous build" to see if that was the problem but I still keep getting the pop up dialog box asking for permission for the two programs.


    What can I do to solve this as its very annoying? Hope someone can help

    Thanks

    You can reset Windows Firewall rules to default. Run CMD as admin and copy/paste:

    netsh advfirewall reset

    Turn off it


    Just Turn off Windows Firewall, install other one if you really need Firewall.

    Just tried that but still the permission window pops up for chrome and itunes

    Dont understand why it doesnt save the preferences to allow permission for the two programs and why it has changed

    OK, try to disable Windows Firewall temporarily to see, if it is really it causing the problem. You can use this command:

    netsh advfirewall set allprofiles state off
