    I created a Windows Firewall rule and now I cannot delete it


    Following a guide, I created a windows firewall outbound rule in order to block an IP and improve the lobby times from a game. It did not work, and now the game works even worse than before.

    Now I am trying to the delete the rule, but the delete option is missing. It is an outbound rule that appears in the "'monitoring>firewall" section of the Windows Firewall with Advance Security.

    Please help me to delete the rule.

    Windows Firewall: Doesn't show blocking rules

    Hello!

    Today I've blocked all connections of a program by creating a outbound rule in Windows Firewall. However, I now wish to remove it. The problem: I can't find that newly created rule anywhere in the list. The rule does take an effect, since deactivating the
    Firewall lets the program run properly. I can only see rules in the list that "allow" stuff, but not those who block things.

    What I have tried so far:

    - All filters set to "Show all" within the Firewall

    - Created the same rule again, doesn't show up

    - Created a rule that allows the program, shows up

    Any solutions?

  3. How to see when Windows firewall rules were created

    The only seemingly relevant discussion which I have found with regard to the subject is the following

    Is there anyway to see when a Windows firewall rule was created/enabled using PowerShell v2 or CMD?

    However the discussion seems a little outdated. I can manage the Powershell, but before executing the code would like to ask MS experts to verify it. I dont need to see the firewall rules created in 2004. What I want is the list of firewall rules (both inbound
    and outbound) ordered by date and time of creation.
