Microsoft firewall is one-way (inbound) only. This will not stop trojans "phoning home".

Anti virus: AVG click here

Firewall: Zone Alarm click here

When Norton firewall tries to alert you to something it interferes with what's running, game or otherwise. Used to throw me out of any thing I was running.

With the advice of the others on here I am using AVG free and sygate free firewall, all without a hitch, computer flies along.

Windows firewall is a wast of time, as VoG says, it's only inward not outward.
