antivirus update wont install firewall

Unfortunately, I only have an unoffical version of Windows XP Home on my desktop. On trying to up-grade my Panda Internet Security from 2008 to 2009 version, it warned me that my protection was low since it couldn't install the Firewall due to my Windows not being sufficently up to date. I can't update it, so it seems I have two alternatives, since I still have another year to run with my Panda licence:

1. Accept the 2009 version but without Firewall. (My broadband router apparently has one already), or
2. Downgrade back to Panda 2008, where the Firewall loads without problems.

Which is preferable and more secure for e-mails (Outlook Express) and web browsing?

Many thanks in advance for your opinions.

Buy a licensed copy of Windows.

Thanks for your suggestion. In fact I now have a new laptop and have installed Norton with no problem onto it. But it wont install on my old desktop for the same reason as I mentioned. Since I won't have my desktop for very long, I'm not prepared to buy a licensed copy of Windows for it now. Any further help would be appreciated.

basically you are asking for help with a Pirate copy of windows (if ive read correctly )...you will get no help here and i would expect the FE to close this thread once seen.

By all means we can help if you have a legitimate install of windows.
