Seems like windows 7 is quite a fine OS, found one missing feature, or something that I can’t figure out. If you tell the firewall to block all outgoing applications unless they have a rule for it, it will not notify you about blocked outgoing connections and it is not possible to get a notification. It seems to completely ignore the allowed applications and only takes settings from the “advanced security settings”.

Sphinx Software have made a tray notification that tells you what’s been blocked and add exceptions for blocked programs.
