You could try Kerio personal firewall. This is free for home users

The free version of ZoneAlarm has served me well through thick and thin (updated every few months or so) for several years.

if you want to pay for a firwall Outpost Pro2.0 from agnitum is the one to buy doesn't use up a lot of pc resources, that is memory while running.

you can configure to prompt for ActiveX and other active content. Cookies which are often installed through e-mails can also be blocked, I only found this out after using this Firewall

Meant to add, after you've installed and configured your firewall, it's a good idea to run some port scan tests. These will show if you have any ports exposed.

I recently installed Kerio and thought I'd configured it correctly but when I ran the port scan tests I found out I hadn't configured it correctly as I still had some ports showing as open. Try the below link and run the tests

Can also test on the Symantec site
