  • Best free firewall for free antivirus?

    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.

          Despite of using any external firewall in your system its better advisable to configure some of the most vital features of the inbuild firewall which comes along with operating system to make it perform to its best.

              I am using AVG and i think it is perfect.

                I second the AVG endorsement. I've been using it for years with no breaches. I use the paid version however.
