Windows 10 Pro firewall rules changing every week with windows update RRS feed

  • Question

  • My windows 10 pro firewall rules are changing pretty much every week where there is a windows update. Once the windows update my pc, I have to manually make all the firewall rules back to how it was to begin with which waste my time, roughly 1 hour every week. 

    Why is this and what is root cause and how to fix it.

  • Hi,

    To further troubleshoot this issue, I suggest you uninstall the Windows update, then re-install the update, during which process, run Process Monitor to find out how firewall rules are changed.

    If further assistance is required, here is a dedicated Windows 10 forum below I suggest you refer to:
