Zone Alarm and several other firewalls will do it.

The windows built in firewall will block all outgoing except for programs you specifically select if you set it up that way. So that'll stop all unknowns from calling out. But it's not as easy or verbose about telling you when a specific program that you have not white-listed is trying to call out. Zone alarm is a lot more chatty about what programs are doing on your machine...
