I'm currently testing a few windows firewall controllers and i would like you opinion about

Consider:
1) Effective and Secure: it does what is meant to do.
2) Private: The author/organization is reliable and privacy police can be trusted
3) Simple: The interface is good and easy to handle
4) Free



I've already tested the first 3 options. I really liked WFC and Spysheltter. Currently I'm running WFC with Bitdefender Free. IMHO simplewall lacks an user guide, for the more advanced features.
I recently checked about Evorim, but i don't see a lot of people testing it. What do you think?

Ty!

I tried WFC a few years ago, and it was heavy: I got a significant slowdown. Is it still like that?

I didn't feel any slowdown. It may be a version difference. I used wfc only recently.:)

Software that uses the built-in fw has excellent stability. I think it's an advantage that deserves to be recommended.
