    Default How good is New Windows XP Firewall to protect my computer?

    Hi!

    I have recently noticed that Windows XP SP2 (service pack2) has built in firewall to protect against incoming attacks. My question or real concern is how good is new Windows XP firewall for protecting against incoming attacks?

    Go for zonealarm free firewall. It works and 10 times superior than the Windows XP SP2 firewall, IMPO.
