Whoops, sorry, missed the second half...

Really, since Windows doesn't come with a flexible scriptable firewall, 
there's little that you can do directly on a windows box itself.

If you must stick to windows-only you can buy a copy of CheckPoint FW/1 for 
your Windows box and use snortsam.

Although for the money I'd recommend not buying FW/1 and getting a separate 
firewall box and have snortsam command that. For the price of FW/1 you 
should be able to buy a Cisco PIX or Watchguard firebox. From what I read 
on the net, Checkpoint can be pretty pricey.

Snortsam can handle a variety of firewalls and can run with snort on a 
windows box :
