I've been very annoyed with the programs that hog my internet connection, I wasn't doing anything on my pc and saw that something was downloading, it wasn't my antivirus or browser or important updates. So I want to get an external firewall software that can block internet connections from applications.
Was wondering if anyone would like to suggest a good free firewall software that can block applications accessing the internet.

The windows firewall is effective but it doesn't show you which apps connect to the internet, or does it?
I was reading on the net and they say Comodo is the best. I just hope it works with Avast! Free. I am downloading it now, will install and tell you how it is. Thanks for the advice

How did you even see that something was thrashing about the internet (if you're using Win7) ? It made me so nervous not knowing whether my PC was downloading (or even worse : uploading) stuff I was not aware of that I installed a freebie called Network Indicator which resembles the Win XP network indicator. Now I rest a lot easier !

Rock, that's exactly what I needed, that Network Indicator is such a relief. Thank you.

Though I am too lazy for a firewall these days, I only use Avira free. Lol.
@ Gh0zt, love the sig dude!

I should just buy Kaspersky Internet Security as I have been with free antiviruses my whole life.
@Zizzy, Thanks man if you would like I could make you one but I doubt you want one since I'm pretty sure you like showing off how good you are at BF3
