Firewalls that loads before windows own firewall does provide outbound connection protection during the boot stage. Zonealarm, SEP, Comodo, even McAfee can do that. LOLbins are targeded for system files only and they cannot connect to internet IF third party net filterin driver is loaded (block all connections before Zonealarm own driver is loaded, for example).

I really recoomend, SEP IDS/FIRWALL component only. It can do a lot more than WFP. WFP based firewalls can be really easy to by-pass during boot-phase. Never ever trust windows own firewall.
I stopped using 3rd party firewall since it prevented OS updates, borked by installation and messed up my app settings. I'm glad I had a clean image from MR otherwise would have lost 72 hrs long tweaked OS.

Bitwarden with 2FA with MS Authenticator. Tried Authy it was good, I felt MS Authenticator cloud backup had most of my 2FA accounts so migrated to it so that I don't have to keep track of multiple master passwords.
