XP comes with a fire wall that doesn’t seem to cause trouble.
The other Fee Bee is Zone alarm.
Only use one at a time.

Unless you are running dialup get a hardware firewall such as the Linksys, D-Link etc. Zone Alarm is great. But you can't beat a hardware firewall such as a Linksys BEFSR41. Any software firewall has to use some computer resources.
