The one that I use is ZoneAlarm. Link in my sig. There is a free and a Pro version. I use the free version. And am quite pleased with it.

If you do choose to install one. You will need to disable the XP firewall.

You have many to choose from, and the good thing is that many of them are free. I use and recommend Sygate Personal Firewall.

Sygate personal firewall. Importantly free of cost. Best for home users.
