This is completely normal in Windows 8/8.1. To quote
"To Quote Kit when he was with Webroot!
'WSA Firewall Settings in Windows 7 just expose control of the Windows Firewall that aren't exposed by the OS but can be controlled by other apps.
In Windows 8 and 8.1, these firewall settings are exposed by the OS, but MS took control away from apps to prevent apps from deciding to kick each other. So there is already these controls in the OS and WSA couldn't change them anyway.
Those controls are completely separate from the WSA portion of the firewall which triggers and takes action related to infections, so there is no reduction in protection.'"
Edit: I posted my reply before I saw Baldrick's, I apologize about that . One thing I feel compelled to point out though Baldrick, is that the link you provided links to your thread bookmarks. I presume you meant to link to a thread you have bookmarked? Thought I should point that out for you buddy .
