Zone Alarm. I couldn't honestly tell about the legitimately free version, - I've never tried it - but security suite owns.

honestly i don't use anything for virus protection, if i get infected i just re-install Windows. I know not everyone can do that though. You might want to look into getting AVG or something. Not fancy or anything, but if you're crazy worried about it then that might work.

well you can use the ZoneAlarm or Comodo free firewalls.

better hurry up on switching firewalls, since Windows firewall is next to useless.

check this list out:

This has got to be one of the dumbest approaches to computer security I have ever heard. The only thing stupider would be to actually install the virus on purpose before reinstalling windows....

ZoneAlarm is very good, gives you the in-depth control that you need on a process by process basis while still being easy to use.

What if you get a backdoor which the AV doesn't recognize? Then it'll be allowed to connect and run without your knowledge...
