Hi mcrmg,
There are several around .. Zone alarm is well recommended, I use Symantec, Muy Son uses McAfee. Here's a 'comparison' Tongue in cheek, its on theAgnitum Outpost site so it's probably biased:-)

ZoneAlarm Pro is good if you plan on blocking ads as well as addresses, the good thing I found is its seemless integration with Internet Connection Sharing. It can be set up as either client or server and integrates seemlessly on basic ICS networks.

This is what I can tell you from my experience :)
