I have an interesting problem with the Network Protection... I have Mozilla Firefox added as an Application Rule as Allow (it got added to the list when the firewall was set to Default Action > Prompt). Then I set Default Action back to Allow, and everything worked okay for some time, but after a couple of days Ad-Aware started denying the Internet access for Firefox (Firefox can’t establish a connection to the server at XX). Firefox is able to access the Internet if I turn Network Protections off, and the problem disappears immediately after C:\...\firefox.exe is removed from the Application Rules list.
Tested a couple of times, and the problem always reappears about 3-5 days after Firefox is added to the Rules list.
Other programs which also have the Allow rule work okay (Internet Explorer, for example, can access the internet ... but it's true I rarely use it).
(Windows 10 64-bit, Firefox is 64-bit too)
Update: The problem also goes away if you restart computer
