    Currently running Win 10 Pro, version 1903.


    Hi,


    I've installed Comodo and use that as my firewall, meaning Windows Defender Firewall is turned off permanently.


    Every now and then I get Windows Defender Firewall popups asking me whether I want to allow or block applications.


    When I go to Firewall and Network Protection settings, it says "No action needed" on all networks Domain, Private and Public.


    Domain, Private and Public networks all show that Comodo is turned on and, "Windows Defender firewall as not active, because you are using other providers".


    Is there a reason I'm getting these Windows Defender Firewall popups? E.g. my computer is infected?


    Thank you.

    :)

    Windows Firewall blocking websites

    I have blocked IP addresses, e.g. 255.255.255.255, not URLs, e.g. somewebsite.co m.

    As far as unblocking, look at your Windows Firewall rules. Do you see anything that is blocked? If you do, click on the Scope tab and see what is listed there.

    Windows Firewall blocking websites

    Windows Firewall can't block specific websites, only port numbers (HTTP uses 80 or 8080). More likely, Windows Firewall is blocking the Windows Update Service or some other critical update application and/or port number that prevents updates from happening.

    As twilyth pointed out, this is abnormal and likely caused by some form of malware. If you even found a the offending rule in Windows Firewall, the malware will likely put it back to the way it was within seconds.

    Does Microsoft Download Center: Windows, Office, Xbox & More open for you? It should redirect a few times and end up at: Microsoft Download Center: Windows, Office, Xbox & More

    Have you tried to ping download.microsoft.com? I did it a few times so you should be able to get a response off it.
