Internet Connection Sharing Turned On ?

Using Windows FW and Windows FW Control. Looked at rules today and many ICS settings show on and active. Like UPnP in /out  SSDP-In/Out.

No Remote Addresses are shown. Just found Remote Assistance turned on Remote Access OFF which I always set.

Wonder if anyone has seen this before. I have all sharing turned off unless there is a setting I don't know about.

Really weird !

Have to check my desktops. So far only on the one laptop did I see those rules. All my settings are as I have them, no sharing. The very few times I share a file, I just put them on

a flash stick. One computer is hardwired to the router and the other three are wireless. I keep the wireless locked down as much as possible. There are at least

40 wireless networks that I can see around here. Have to watch because Microsoft Windows 10 can be 'updated' to anything.

Using Windows Firewall Control. That is possible but, using on four machines and this has only showed up on one so far.

Years ago I would have gone a different route with an OS. Apple was too expensive and Linux didn't have the programs I used and the ones they had

did not come up to the quality of Windows programs.

Forget OS/2 for anything !!

I am beginning to thick this may be a one time thing and really nothing to worry about.

Is that Binisoft's WFC?   Are you using a current version?    The WFC forum would be a good place to post if there's a possibility that it's not properly showing the rules that are define.  See: https://www.wilderssecurity.com/threads/windows-firewall-control-wfc-by-binisoft-org.347370/page-149

It does seem rather odd, but there could be a reason why it didn't show the change on 4 machines for so long. Perhaps it's whitelisted somehow so that it doesn't confuse people?

I'm also using Binisoft WFC , after looking at its rules panel, i have those rules enabled too when i disabled them in the past; 

Then i looked at my other machine without WFC , those rules are still disabled, so it clearly shows that WFC is responsible for it, i guess those are default WFC rules, indicated in Windows Firewall  as
 

WFC - (rule name) 

and probably added when WFC was updated.
