What is a very simple firewall that I can use to control internet rights for programs on my computer? Perhaps I must be clearer. I am not going to use zone alarm that mucks up my system start up (although it is a very nice firewall program). A router is not going to aide me at all when it comes to blocking the programs on my hard disk.

I've been using ZoneAlarm for a very long time plus a hardware router firewall, so I might not be able to give a qualified opinion on other software firewalls; however, I know that COMODO firewall is also highly valued ( anyone who have used this or any other firewall is welcome to add their opinion). Also the one of the very simple ones is the Windows' own firewall, though it's effectiveness have been questioned many times, but I haven't heard that it gives any conflicts or other glitches. (I might be under-informed on this, though.)

A firewall is a part of a computer system or network that is designed to block unauthorized access while permitting authorized communications. It is a device or set of devices that is configured to permit or deny network transmissions based upon a set of rules and other criteria.
