So, I need a firewall to block internet access of some of the software installed on my PC, which I would choose by hand. It must warn me whenever an application tries to access the internet, and let me choose whether to allow it or not. I don't want any firewall which doesn't have this feature.

In old days, there was a great firewall named "Symantec Personal Firewall". But there is no new version developed for years, and its older versions are not compatible with my current operating system.

Any suggestion will be appreciated.

Hi hkBattousai , Windows Seven Firewall is a perfectly good Firewall and with configuration becomes a good two way Firewall, how to accomplish this is explained in a very good tutorial here at Windows Seven Forums by our Administrator Brink
