    Comodo Firewall = http://www.personalfirewall.comodo.com/ = "Comodo Firewall, rated by PC Magazine Online as an Editor's Choice, constantly monitors and defends your PC from internet attacks. It's easy to install and use and passes the industry's most stringent firewall "leak" tests. Unlike some other 'free' firewalls, this is not a stripped down version but is the full, completely functional product. This free solution comes complete with continual updates that are free forever." Note - Not compatible with Windows 98 systems."

    or = http://www.pctools.com/firewall = Windows XP, 2000 and 2003 server - Freeware

    or = R-Firewall is a FREE program comparable with commercial firewalls = http://www.r-firewall.com/

    Never have 2 or more software firewalls running on the same computer as they will conflict with each other. Remember now with SP2 on WinXP there is a firewall, so when using a third party alternative be sure to disable the Windows SP2 firewall.

    or = Jetico Free Personal Firewall = http://www.jetico.com/index.htm#/jpfirewall.htm = For 98+

    or = Free Kerio Firewall = It will give you "full version" access for 14 days, then will revert back to free version(which works just fine).= http://www.sunbelt-software.com/Kerio.cfm

    Enterprise Firewall = Trustix Enterprise Firewall provides the strongest perimeter security and VPN for corporate networks. Also features unique 'drag and drop' configuration of DMZ's, high availability automatic fail over, advanced network traffic shaping and more. Free lifetime license at - http://www.trustix.org/

    ( Never have 2 or more software firewalls running on the same computer as they will conflict with each other. Remember now with SP2 on WinXP there is a firewall, so if you get a third party alternative be sure to disable the Windows SP2 firewall! Only use/enable one software firewall)

    An important thing to keep in mind of course, regardless of which anti-virus, anti-malware, anti-spyware and firewall you use is to keep it UPDATED, just as it is important to make sure you have all windows critical and security updates + http://update.microsoft.com/windowsupdate/v6/defau...

    The way I have mine set is to only notify me that updates are availiable, but to not download them automaticaly. Then I can check to be sure I get just the ones I want. I then click on "custom", and after the updates have been downloaded I look them over to see which ones I want, then disconnect from the net, disable firewall and anti-virus program, and then install the updates, and then re-enable the firewall and anti-virus programs before reconnecting to the net.

    xp has a free firewall

    zonelab do zonealarm which is free

    http://www.zonealarm.com/store/content/company/pro...

    important

    follow the link at the bottom of the page otherwise you will get the trial version

    the xp version is fine if you r behind a firewall on a router but it only stops incoming not outgoing. i use it as it takes up fewer resources and i know my pc is clean

    only down side with zonealarm is that it doesn't support ics
