What are your needs with the firewall. Do u parental control your network? Or u just want a layer of additional security?

For average users Windows firewall (with a good AV like Eset, Qihoo, Avast etc..) is more than enough.
For advanced users Online Armor, Comodo firewall or Private Firewall are the best choices.

Comodo firewall.

If you use Windows firewall with BiniSoft's Windows Firewall Control ($10) then use limited Guest Account as much as possible or add freeware antiexecutable - VooDooShield or NoVirusThanks Exe Radar Pro - some malwares can disable Windows firewall and UAC !

Many alternative firewalls, just remember the power of its effect comes by proper user configuration,

(Privatefirewall, Zonealarm Firewall or Outpost Firewall as third party firewall )

I am huge fan of Emsisoft Internet Security but in terms of Inbound and Outbound Internet Attacks Protection no other firewalls will beat ZoneAlarm PRO Firewall ever :cool: It's always getting updated and fully compatible with Windows 10 not like other firewalls...


Hack Attack Protection
ZoneAlarm
practically invented the concept of hardening a firewall against direct attack.

Two-way Firewall
Stops Internet attacks at the front door and even catches thieves on their way out. Our two-way firewall proactively protects against inbound and outbound attacks while making you invisible to hackers.
  • Threat Traffic is monitored and blocked – inbound and outbound.
  • Full Stealth Mode makes you invisible to hackers.
  • Kill Controls instantly disable malicious programs.
Advanced Firewall
No product is 100% effective against viruses or spyware. ZoneAlarm’s advanced firewall monitors behaviors within your computer to spot and stop even the most sophisticated new attacks that bypass traditional antivirus and security suites.
  • OSFirewall™ Monitors programs for suspicious behavior – spotting and stopping new attacks that bypass traditional anti-virus protection.
  • Advanced-access Protection targets and defeats new, advanced attacks that other firewalls miss, such as raw data access, timing, and SCM and COM attacks.
  • Zero-hour Protection prevents silent outbreaks from gaining system access – before other security programs can even detect the threat.
  • Application Control uniquely shields your operating system during start-up, before most security products have even loaded.
  • Early Boot Protection uniquely shields your operating system during start-up, before most security products have even loaded.
Additional Layers
Multiple layers of advanced protection provide unsurpassed security.
  • Anti-Spam filters out annoying and potentially dangerous emails.
  • Wireless PC Protection shields you from hackers, identity thieves and other online threats when you connect to an unsecured network.
  • Automatic Wireless Network Security detects wireless networks and automatically applies the most secure firewall protection setting.
  • DefenseNet™ provides real-time security updates, responds quickly to breaking threats and leverages threat data from millions of users – protecting your PC from the latest attacks.
