McAfee Desktop Firewall 8.5 doesn't work properly

Hi, I have McAfee Desktop firewall 8.5 on my Windows XP pro system, defined a Rule to block all ip protocolls in both directions and activated the firewall.

But I still can go to the internet with tghe browser and the activity protocol of the firewall says "Allowed ..." to all outgoing connections.

What's wrong with the firewall ?

Regards Pep

Obviously it does not do what it is advertised to do. A very common problem with so called personal firewalls.
