    Firewall that'll block internet access for other programs & processes?


    Is there a good Firewall application that can effectively sandbox any program I choose, or any Window process and stop them accessing the internet?
    Also I want it to tell me:
    * What program is trying to access the internet
    * How often
    * What IP address they are sending to

    Don't mind paying a few $ for a good one.

    Hi Bansaw, you need a two way Firewall that you can configure, I have used Zone Alarm Firewall (Free ware) and it works very well :)

    Firewall Software by GlassWire - visually amazing, you have to block apps manually in free version.

    Comodo Firewall 10 Setup - YouTube - a firewall with sandbox, can be annoying, but blocks everything.

    You can try TinyWall, Evorim Firewall, Simplewall Firewall (still in beta but good), xVirus Firewall as 3rd party firewall additional suggestions.

    How about Binisoft Windows Firewall Control..? Though it's not free.
