Hello,

I set my windows 7 firewall to only allow approved outgoing connections. I added exceptions for all the programs that need them and most work fine, but google chrome seems to be the exception. Even with a rule allowing it to make outgoing connections, chrome is still able to access the internet. (Error 138: ERR_NETWORK_ACCESS_DENIED). I assume that it has something to do with the way chrome accesses the internet (and I should probably ask this on the google product forums too) but I was wondering if anyone here had any insight/similar issues. I'm not sure if its chrome or the firewall causing this issue

Thanks
Matt

I figured it out: I was using the chrome.exe in the /program files/google/chrome when I needed to add the .exe in /[user]/AppData
