There are alot of firewalls that are very good and helpful.However I just have Windows firewall enabled which comes in XP. If you really want your computer to be secure then I recommend you install another firewall. There is a list of firewalls here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/understanding-and-using-firewalls/ <- that is a tutorial, near the bottom there will be a list of firewalls. Experment with it and see which one works best for you.
Which Firewall is the best choice for users that want to install it and forget it basically and still feel and actually be secure?
I don't think there is such program that can do that. There are ways to repair the errors and corruptions or missing files according to your promblem. If you have a promblem with your OS. You can post it in this forum: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/76/operating-systems/ and people will help with your promblem according to the promblem.
Also, is there a program in existance that scans your OS and repairs all errors, corruptions, missing or deleted files and basically stabilizes the OS?

You want the bottom line? If you don't like Comodo, you won't like any of them. It's probably the easiest to use. You have to educate yourself on how to properly train any firewall and they are all going to notify you and ask you to decide. It's always going to come down to the user. Any firewall is only as good as your willingness to learn how to use it.

Agreed, eventually once you start telling the firewall which files and applications to allow/block it will start remebering that. I suggust you try some of the firewalls mentioned in the tutorial section. Some firewall may work for others but not for you. Its a personal prefrence.
Eventually after a while, the firewall has learned which programs are allowed to do what

Sorry it took so long to reply, I've got my head stuck on another problem currently and I have an active thread about that in the WinXP section.
Which firewall did you choose (if you have already done so).

A software program that repairs the OS before problems occur would be great, but I figured that was just wishful thinking on my part, oh well.
Current systems: WHAT OS, BackTrack-raw, PCLinuxOS, Peppermint OS 6, Kali Linux
and a custom Linux From Scratch server hosting a bunch of top secret stuff.
