This is the Firewall ive been recommending in the past few days for best free firewall (not including windows firewall) But on startup it did take a few seconds to load on my old laptop (It has a Intel Celeron, 1.6ghz though)

#1 on the list, Online Armor Personal Firewall, is also free.

Don't know if it's Win 7 compatible though.

Ive been using PC Tools Firewall Plus for a few weeks now.. I like the way that it gives you total control over out bound connection attempts. You will get quite a few notifications when you first install in, but after a few days, you will hardly even know its there. A good solid product and the price is right!!

Online Armor is still not Win7 compatable. Running it in Vista compatable mode got it through its initial checks and caused a BSOD on reboot. Had to go into Safe Mode and remove it to get back the system.
