Livesafe firewall malfunction

I use the firewall Security Level setting in Stealth.

Not all connections are blocked, many programs are enabled by default, e.g. Skype, Edge. Even if I delete the rule after restarting the pc, the same is enabled. Some programs do not ask for permission, they allow the rule themselves.

This is not good, I want to grant program permissions.

Thanks for the quick response!

I already reinstalled the program because this error occurred:

There is no third-party antivirus installed my machine.

Since opening the topics, MS Sharepoint has also been enabled without question.

Ever since there’s a new user interface, Mcafee has been getting worse.

Re: Livesafe firewall malfunction

The firewall still independently allows e.g. MS programs without permission.

The Stealth feature is misleading.

How do I configure my firewall to connect only to the network that I allow?
