    XP has its own firewall which is good enough to do the job,

    SPF4 is great; Comodo is very similar :)

    I switched to Comodo Personal Firewall couple of years ago, when I eventually dumped ZA for good.

    I never have had any issue with it; it offers excellent protection, also OutPost Free Personal Firewall is very respectable option. Lastly, its always good idea to keep an eye on what is leaving from your; not just what is coming into it ;)

    I personally had tons of issues with Sunbelt.

    I switched to Online Armor and it has been very good. Their free version even has HIPS.
