Firewall recommendations

I am currently using Windows Firewall on my Acer laptop. Can anyone recommend a free firewall that would be better than Windows please?

Zone alarm works fine for me

For a simple mind like mine Kerio free Firewall was the best.Comodo and Zone alarm and others you are constantly asked if you want to accept programs or deny them.If you are easily confuse I would use Kerio.If not Comodo is about the best of the other freebies.

I would very much recommend the Comodo Firewall.

Agree Z/A it can be a bit daunting to the novice but surely its better to be asked and have some idea what goes out from your pc.One can always google anything you are not sure of and also one can tick to always allow or deny once you decide.
