Blocking incoming network connections in Windows 7.


P

When I had WindowsXP, I would go to its "Security Centre" and then to
the "Windows Firewall" then to the tab "Exceptions" and then to the
"Add Program" button, and then add the program to lock out from the
internet.

Where can I do this in Windows 7?

Same.

Except that there's an Advanced button eventually rather than an
Exceptions tab.

Thanks, I figured it out eventually, but it's all much more
complicated than XP.

I don't agree with your last phrase at all. Rather, because it's
somewhat different, it takes some time to get used to.

It took me a little time, but now that I'm used to Windows 7, whenever
I use an XP machine (which is very seldom these days) it seems
unfamiliar and strange.
