Open Control Panel and click on Security Center. Firewall should indicate ON
Click on the double down pointing arrows (Chevrons actually) to the right of Firewall
That will tell you what firewall program is active.
Artificial intelligence is no match for natural stupidity.

As you have Windows OS you surely would have Windows Firewall active, but Ztruker has kindly advised you how to check this.
I have had ZoneAlarm Firewall for ages on my systems and can highly recommend it to you. If you were to download and install it, it will turn off Windows Firewall automatically.
Yes in my experience the free firewalls are fine. As stated, I have had the above on my computers for years with no untoward problems at all.

Interested to know what Antivirus you are using, as you mention Mcafee? Are you running their prevention software? If so does it include a firewall?
I am not familiar with Mcafee, so please make sure you uninstall any firewall other than Windows Firewall before downloading and installing ZoneAlarm.
Avast Anitvirus runs very well with ZoneAlarm Firewall if you need a recommendation.
Keep us posted how you go.
