Firewall (Policy-based) not blocking programs without rule?

Go to solution Solved by DreamAlive,

Hello everyone,

Trying out Internet Security, Windows 10. Firewall in Policy-based mode, the Windows Firewall has been automatically turned off. I've added a few rules to ESET (haven't touched the built-in ones) but noticing that several programs without a rule connect normally. Others programs are being blocked. I thought this mode blocks everything without a rule? Firefox for example connects normally.

Rules that allow these programs are still present in the Windows Firewall, but:

a) Switching them to Disabled/Blocked changes nothing
b) Windows Firewall is disabled and should be ignored anyway?

Thank you
