Do I need a third party firewall for Windows 7?

Do I need a third party firewall for Windows 7?

I have always used third party firewalls (Zone Alarm) to avert attacks and to prevent installed softwares (like Adobe Updater) from connecting to internet. Unfortunately, when I migrated to Windows 7, I found that Zone Alarm doesn't work. Is there any other option/software to guard my gates to internet.

If you're feeling really paranoid, you can turn on outbound as well as inbound connection filtering on the built in windows firewall.
