Personal firewall for Windows 7?

I want a simple firewall that monitors and prompts me about incoming and outgoing traffic.

I don’t want any of those bloated “security suites”, just the firewall.

Any recommendations?

What’s wrong with the one that comes with Win 7? I use it and It’s been just fine.

Passes the test at ShieldsUp!.

It generally doesn’t block outgoing traffic and is not very easy to configure. With a personal firewall you are notified whenever a program wants to transmit and can allow it or block in several ways.

That’s because you’ve not set it to do that. And it’s much the same as other packages to configure.
