I'm looking for a good and advanced firewall for win7?

Hello
Sorry if my english is a little bit bad, but i hope you will understand me.
In my older computers, i use Sygate Personal Firewall Pro 5.5 but it does not work on win7 .. So i wonder if there are any other firewalls that are as advanced or more?
I still want to be able to allow or block MAC addresses, IP addresses and the entire range of IP addresses, for all applications or only individual applications.
And i like that Sygate have detailed logs and connection details....... but I'm not going to complain if it is even better and more detailed logs.
Do you have any suggestions?

and yes, i cheat a little bit with a translator to get a correct spelling.. it's better for all of us that way i think.

I've been happy with ZoneAlarm's free firewall and have been using it for several years.

I use and highly recommend Windows 10 Firewall Control

Don't let the name fool you...it works with windows versions Vista, 7, 8 AND 10.

It's highly customizable. The free version works great for most. I run the free version on 4 machines here, but I have the paid Plus Edition on my main system, as it allows me to block windows system connections, specific IP addresses and much more.

Hey! Thanks for the tip.
I have tested free ZoneAlarm, but it missing many functions for my needs, unfortunately. But ZoneAlarm is a very good freeware and does it's job well.

Helluu
Oh no.. program name is nothing that i relay react to. ....as long as it is not from Microsoft .. then you should beware of anything that has a W and a 10 or X in the same sentence.
I've tested the free version Windows 10 Firewall Control, and it was not for me. But I will test the Plus version and evaluate it.
Thanks for the tip.
