I am using Win XP, and it comes with a firewall, which I have never really done anything with.

A friend got a virus, even though he had Norton on his system, and later was told that a firewall would have helped him.

I heard that if you are using free anti-virus, that it is better to use the free Zonealarm firewall then the WinXP firewall.

I am using win xp as well. My firewall is zonealarm, but I don't they give any free programs anymore, but still go ahead and check it out. My antivirus is avira. Its also free. Try and get it. I haven't gotten any virus in a long time. Good luck.

XP has so many vulnerabilities,and its not updated regularly.
Also the antivirus must be up to date even a week old database can leave you unprotected.
