Firewall Button for LAN Gaming

Quick and easy tool to enable and disable the Windows 10 firewall. This is ideal for playing LAN games such as Minecraft which use changing port numbers.  It’s also useful for other LAN games so that in-depth troubleshooting is not required prior to having fun. Simply open the program and enable or disable the firewall.  Remember to Enable the firewall once more when done playing the game.  This is a great tool for children playing LAN games with changing ports.

Better Update Browser is now updates capable.
