Firewall Smart Advice setting

I am new to McAfee. I have used another internet security software before.  I want to have control over allowing and blocking program access. The previous internet security program I used, had an 'auto' and 'ask' setting. Please take a look at the snapshots. Please tell me what I should select so I can allow and block program access.

I'd go with stealth, then your firewall is doing what it was intended to do; hide your machine from potential threats.

You also have complete control over what has access to the Internet.
