1)Just for "neatness" I'd like to delete the bizzillion skype instances in the Firewall's exceptions. I tried
Control Panel-Administrative Tools-Windows Firewall with Advanced Security, but saw nothing there. The help only says why multiples exist:
Why do multiple instances of the same program appear on the Exceptions tab?
If you install, uninstall, or re-install a program when you are connected to different networks, several instances of that program can appear on the Exceptions tab. This is because if each network that you connect to has a different network location, you must create an exception for each category. For example, you might create an exception while you are connected to a "Public place" network, and then, later, you might connect to a "Home or work" network and create that exception again.
This can also happen when Group Policy
2) If I understand the "help", every time skype connects, it does thru a different pathway so warrants a different exception. Does this mean I can't prevent multiple instances from continuing to be added every time I use skype?
