Folder Firewall Blocker is a free software to block all inbound and outbound connections of all executable files of a folder. It supports EXE, DLL, BAT, COM, JSE, CMD, JS, VBE, OCX, MSI, SCR, SYS, WSH,DRV, and other format files. So, if you want to block internet access for all these files available in a particular folder (including sub-folders), this software can help you for sure. You only need to enter the folder, enable sub-folder scanning, select the file types, and then this software will do the rest of the work.
Manually, we can create a new rule to allow/block inbound and/or outbound connection for an application only (at a time). Also, only EXE file is supported to allow/block connection manually. This software is much better to use than manual option.
