my reccomendation would be Kerio (google will find it) and set it up for simple or advanced depending on how seriously you want to monitor its performance.
good luck :)

See some firewall tests for comparison, some are freeware but many are paid for versions http://www.firewallleaktester.com/tests.php. Also see http://www.thefreecountry.com/security/firewalls.shtml

I'm using Sunbelt Kerio Personal Firewall. I love its simple interface which easy to understand, I like its application behavior blocking that gives me some kind of proactive protections.

 :)  Hi Cactus :

      There is NO "best free firewall"; just need to find one that
      suits you . For starters, would recommend you view the
      info at www.spychecker.com/software/freeware_firewall.html .

      I, personally, like the FREE Sygate, that is listed at
      www.filehippo.com/software/firewalls/  because there is
      a "Setup Guide" available .

Another plug for Comodo. Apart from an old Norton one (2000 I think, it was great!) and XP's inbuilt, it's the only other I've used. Seems effective, easy to use, passes the ShieldsUp test (all service ports) and doesn't use much cpu/ram.

I read the leaktest a few weeks a go.
And see the Firewall of Windows. very bad.
Now must i tell you that i earlier this year used the Kerio Firewall,
and this is a very good one,only now i have him in the freeversion
on me computer. So i ask by my self ,is the Free Kerio O,K?
Then have i running Webroot Spysweeper (very good) and now Avast4Home.
A few guys prefeer Comodo, and i think that i Comodo install and then
can i say whats better is.
I know its a personal tasty,but there is no Firewall (even Buy) with
a score off 100% .
Let me thank all off you for reacting on me question,and the fact
that i already have a good one.

Is the Free Kerio OK?
Yes, it is a very good firewall.

can i say whats better is.
The one you like, works, does its job.
Both Comodo and Kerio are good firewalls.

My friend - a big guru in IPS - says he won't recommend COMODO anymore. :) The reason is as follows (from his words): COMODO doesn't process connections at high-number ports from 65000 to 65535. :)

If you look for a free firewall, Kerio will be a good choice. It may defend you from unknown viruses. :) It has deep drivers, it is practically fully functional, etc.
