TinyWall will work as an extension of Windows default firewall allowing you to access and manage it faster, with additional features and in a lightweight way.
Once installed, the program can be accessed through right click on its icon from System Tray. It displays inbound and outbound transfer (total real time bandwidth), you can change the mode (block all, allow all, disable firewall, normal and autolearn).
Choosing Manage you will be able to access and tweak program's settings. Set a password to prevent unauthorized modifications, add applications, files, processes to allow list permanently or for a specified time.The program allows to export settings and import saved ones. In this way, you can create multiple profiles.
TinyWall lists all current connections and with right click you can unblock or terminate each process.
An interesting feature is whitelist by window that allows to add entries to allowed items by simply clicking an active window of an application (your browser, for example).
Great utility that will enhance Windows default firewall through a non intrusive and pretty intuitive interface.
