:thumbsup: Installed recently, wondering if it is any good, and if so, should I use the firewall with it instead of XP firewall. I have XP Pro w/SP2.

If you've already bought a new firewall then use it. If not then get one of a number of free firewalls that will work just as well. (Outpost, ZoneAlarm, Kerio). All firewalls will turn off the deficient Windows firewall when they are installed.

You should be using:

One good antivirus such as AVG or Avast (both free)
One good firewall (those mentioned above are free)
Several good anti-malware products such as SpywareGuard, SpywareBlaster and Startup Inspector (all free)

Layered protection such as this is the best route to take. There is no need to buy any additional programs.
