Which anti-virus are you using? If you are using Windows Defender (came with Windows 10), it has a firewall. I'm not familiar with many of the other AV's but I think they also have firewalls.

If you use a router it should also already have a firewall.

Why do you feel you need one?

"In the modern world, there's hardly ever a reason to consider installing a standalone personal firewall. The built-in Windows Firewall does half the job, and the firewall within your security suite takes care of the rest. The era of the computer hobbyist who'd carefully and lovingly select each separate security component is long gone."

Hi there,
Thank you both for the reply and help..The reason why I wanted a stand alone firewall because I thought the one that comes with win10 wasn't very good.
