Thanks for your answer.
Im using only ESETs firewall cause i like the design of it.
What you mean with "EAM+CF or EAM+WFC"?
EAM=Emsisoft Anti Malware
CF=Comodo Fire Wall
WFC=Windows Fire Wall Control

Why Emsisoft HAS to be mentioned? OP didn't ask about AV recommendation, from the title it is clear it says "FIREWALL", and stating that they use ESET.

I have no idea what's going on with people in here about Emsisoft!

To OP, if you mean you want ESET firewall to notify (or ask) for ever attempted connection you can set firewall to Interactive mode, read more here: Firewall | ESET Internet Security | ESET Online help

because the OP uses Emsisoft and ESET and it is not recommended to use both at same time, so people show their preferences, which is normal and expected is such kind of thread.

Is that Emsisoft Anti-Malware (Paid) or Emsisoft Emergency Kit (Free)?

What's the problem with ESET's firewall that you don't like about it?

As already stated, running both those products together is not recommended. Also asked, is why you are seeking another FW, are you unhappy with Eset, is there functionality it does not have you require, is the price an issue, have you succumbed to the countless threads stating Eset just will not protect you, by the many users that have no idea how to use it's advanced settings. Are you not willing to rely on the built in monitoring of outbound connections by EAM via Windows Firewall.

Simply put, more information is needed to give you sound advice.

That's why I only quoted that part of omidomi''s post.
Yes running both is not recommended and that being said, but from what I understood that OP wants a software similar to ESET firewall, but with "Control" which I understood that OP wants to get notified or asked on each attempted in/out connection, that's why I linked to ESET help page.

I hope you're not saying that Windows firewall is better than what ESET's has to offer.
In Comodo's case I don't think it will be suitable for average users even to get the hang of its simplest settings, let alone the alerts.
Emsisoft does not that that *GREAT* BB, it mostly dependent on their Network or Cloud. And no it's BB is NOT bullet proof as MANY people think it is, and yet it is indeed not the feature that can separate Emsisoft from others like Kaspersky, GData, Bitdefender. Even Quick Heal has a very active BB.

Personally, I see nothing SO special about Emsisoft to get that MUCH credit, it is yet another product with Bitdefender engine, under a different name with a GUI, and with a very minor in-house engine. Where I can get that BD engine in other several products for free, with few additional free tools and that will provide a better protection that a paid product with BD signatures.

Windows Firewall is enough. All firewalls are supposed to do is let things in/out or not.
Your AV is responsible for checking your traffic, not your firewall. (y)
