    What makes you think the win 10 firewall needs replacing?

    IMHO you are trying to fix something by cluttering your computer with dubious overheads it doesn't need.

    Just let Windows Defender have a go all on its own.

    If you want something that Really does work either ESET Smart Security OR ESET Internet Security, it has the Antivirus as well as a firewall. Its not Free but is well worth it.

    The firewall when set to inactive mode as Below:

    Can actually be a Pain till you get all the programs etc allow / Deny in or out permissions. It will Stop EVERYTHING until you tell it what to do, and when I say everything I mean EVERYTHING, you'd be surprised how many programs want in /out. If set to Automatic Mode (Default) you wont get many requests to allow / Deny traffic of known programs.
