Windows firewall: how block ICMP echo (ping response) ?
Comodo won't run for me any more so I'm back to Win firewall, which yields stealth from Gibson research (GRC) except that it answers the ICMP ping. I can't figure out how to block it. Any help appreciated! Hope that helps! - - - Kris

universalsoldier53, It is there. The way to set it up has changed, but only slightly. It took me all of 2 seconds to find it. I didnt realize that you not being able to do something resulted in other people being "dumbasses." Allow me to help you so that other people aren't "dumbasses" anymore *rolls eyes* Open Windows Firewall with Advanced Security>Inbound Rules>New Rule>Custom Rule>All Programs>Protocol type: ICMPv4 (then click customize at the bottom)>Specific ICMP types: (tick 'Echo Request') (click OK)>Choose your IP settings>Block Connection>Apply to Domain/Private/Public>Finish. tested on win7x64SP1, Win8x64.
