Good evening, everyone. This will be a somewhat weird tale.
I was trying to play Magicka with friends online, when, due some port problems, I was directed to make a specific port for the game. Before I do -anything-, I went to the windows firewall screen to see if said game was allowed to communicate with the outer world. Unsurprisingly, it was.

 

But out of nowhere, I check that one of the things 'allowed' to communicate with my computer through the firewall is... well.. "China". Just the name, China. It was allowed bot Public and Private resources. So I try to uncheck private, success, uncheck public... I fail? I tried closing and opening the screen and, when I open it again, voila, TWO "Chinas", one with the public, and the other private, none allowing me to uncheck the screens.

 

What do I do? What the heck is this?

Nevermind. It seems that my sister was paranoid about the chinese trying to invade her computer and placed a series of IP blocks through advanced security. Apologies for wasting your time, please delete this topic (unless this problem seems to be completely different).
