Probably HostProcess, not System, following the event at least.
Right?

192.168.137.0/24 instead of 0/32 would be better.
0/32 is functionally equal to IPv4/v6 unchecked

The both are generally safe though.

If you would like to investigate the problem in depth, there is a curious thing left.
Your WiDi rule is equal to the existing DHCP rule (of the default rules set).
Did you customize the rules?
