    The best firewall is to disconnect the system from the internet. in all seriousness though, some of the best are free : agnitums outpost (http://agnitum.com/) being one of the best in my opinion. If yoiu have the time and the inclination, an old 486 with a distribution of either Linux runing IPTables or a BSD running IPF would be the best. Stateful firewalling with the greatest of control is definitely the way to go.

    Hope this helps,
    Good luck.

    This has been asked countless times already... I think someone even asked it a few days ago. Anyway, search the archives. Everything you could ever want to know about different firewalls has been discussed and is available there.

    FWIW, AtGuard is still my favorite of all the Windows products, even as old as it is. It's too bad Symantec went out and ruined it. I haven't found another product that matches its flexibility.

    Personally I believe Linux w/ IPTables is the best way to go.. go to garage sales to try and find an old i386 or something.. load linux and setup IP tables. ez as 1,2,3. heh not really but.. it will teach you something about Linux and tcp/ip. Check it out -->IP tables tut
