  1. Eset Smart Security Version, Firewall set to Interactive Mode. I have been having an ongoing problem (for months now, even back on version 9.xx) with firewall rule creation involving only one specific file, HxTsr.exe (Microsoft Outlook Communications). I've created probably close to 50 rules to allow this file outbound access to the various email websites run my Microsoft (office365.com. hotmail.com. outlook.com, etc.) but a few days later it's popping up again asking for permission to allow outbound traffic. I've determined that the problem lies with the files' path. It seems that the file gets updated very frequently, and each time it gets updated, it's path changes relative to it's current version number. For example, the current path to the file as I write this is: C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\microsoft.windowscommunicationsapps_17.8400.41195.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe\HxTsr.exe The problem is, I can create rules till my fingers bleed, but every time the file is updated, the relative path changes and negates all previous rules I've created. I need a solution to this dilemma so that I am not constantly nagged every couple days to re-create firewall rules for this file, and then having to remember to go back into the rules and delete all the old ones that are no longer valid. Is there a way to create a rule for a specific file name, no matter what it's relative path may be, or perhaps a way to just ignore the file name all together? Thanks for any incite into this!
