    Not many good firewalls left, free only Comodo and Zone Alarm, paid: Outpost Pro.

    If you opt for Comodo, be aware it is good, but it is very programmable & has a plethora of settings some people find overwhelming at first. You can find a sample user guide here to investigate it's functions before you decide.

    In that case try Firewall Software by GlassWire - it provides visually nice interface for Windows Firewall.
