Quelle: Wilders SecurityWindows Firewall Control v.184.108.40.206 - New release

- Fixed: When importing a policy file the profile is switched to Low Filtering and the notifications are set to disabled. These two settings are left now like they were before the import.
- Fixed: Update dialog result does not show in the center of the Control Panel window if Manage Rules window is opened.
