Any firewall will do. It'll be better if it blocks incoming/outgoing. So, u can stop/block things.

A later version of zonealarm should work. The one u had may have been a previous version.

Sygate
Tiny
Norton
McAfee
Securepoint
Panda
All these people make a fair to good software firewall and have a "free to try" or free for a good home users
Google them

Outpost and Kerio (version 2.1.5) are also recommended.

Yup, plenty of choice there, Kbbbbb
if you are on broadband check to see if your modem has one, although software firewalls are getting better a well configured hardware one is better again.
