With this current update my firewall flagged the launch centre up as "blocking certain features" and asked if I should allow it access? 

 

I don't remember this happening for previous updates, is this something to worry about?

That's WGC setting the working directory for the 32-bit or the 64-bit clients which is upsetting your firewall. Totally secure and nothing to worry about unless you use mods.

Nothing major really, just the possibility of failing to load. :)

WoT asks me that after every update.

 

Did you change your home network to "private" lately?

Was asked if I would like to allow it on private and/or public. Public wasn't recommended but it was still the ticked one of the two. I changed that and felt very pc savvy.
