You are perfectly welcome You can simply click on that Link I inserted. Wishing you a 'Great Weekend ' as well.
As for myself, I just returned from the Beach. Funny how one 'Gets Away' to relax, yet only to come back home to get rested up...Chuckle.
All the Very Best,
not replying to ping requests was a problem a decade ago when we had modems connected to our PCs, but it's not really valuable now since your PC most likely isn't directly connected to the internet.
If you have a cable or DSL modem, then that's the thing connected to the internet (which needs to not bother replying to pings) - your computer is most likely on a private 10. or 192. network which is not addressable from the internet.
In short, no one outside your home can ping your PC anyway.
