    I've just got my comp back after getting a trojan or something and now I'm looking for a firewall, but which one should I get (commercial or free, free preferably)? Also, is Zonealarm any good?

    Another Q is how do I turn off those annoying messages about spyware you get when you first install XP?

    I've got Zonealarm (free version though) it's works quite well i find.

    To turn off those messages:

    Start>settings>control panel>administrative tools>services>messenger (right click)>recovery tab, take no action for all attempts and stop the service under the general tab.

    Outpost firewall (free in some places )
    I have used zonealarm pro (and the bog standard free one) and imo outpost is much better...
