Windows 8.1 seems to bypass firewalls on restart
Windows 8.1 will tell me about updates even if my internet is turned off. In addition, applications seem to call home, (which I do not allow for security purposes) on windows restart. I know eset 7 has this issue. The firewall worked fine in 7, but applications seem to call home on restart in 8.1. I feel this is a major security hole. An example of an application that bypasses the firewall is Directory Opus 11.4. Anyone know.
