    I personally don't allow anything incoming access unless something won't work and then I might consider it. except for my router

    With a firewall you are going to have to allow access to some outgoing apps. Such as your browser, AV for updates and mail scanning and other apps that have to update online. Just don't allow access to anything that you don't know what it is,If it is something you just have to allow access to you can always allow access later on.
