I use norton internet security which has both anti virus and firewall but you can get the firewall on its own if you already have anti virus (the combined prog works out cheaper), available from most computer outlets. I find it too be very good. I expect that you will get a few other replys from more experienced users soon. info click here

XP has it's own firewall - check your control panel for the internet connection details & it should indicate if the firewall is activated. The XP firewall is oneway only i.e. it only checks for dodgy incoming traffic, it doesn't check what is going out.

Zonealarm is freeware, runs great on my system.

ive been advised on sygate so ive dowloaded it any good ???? it seems ok to me but is there anything better?? or should i stick to this???

I and a few other people I know currently use a hardware firewall called ipcop, all you need is a (very)low spec pc, this would be totally dedicated to the firewall and can be stuck in a (ventilated) cupboard and forgot about (needs no monitor, keyboard or mouse). It also can act as web proxy and can filter the not so nice aspects of the internet experience. Check out ipcop at click here
It takes a little time and discovery to get it set up, but in the long run, you can be safe in the knowledge that you are well protected, also there is a massive support group out there.
