Impossible, a firewall will protect you from much, but not everything. Any of the free firewalls, there are at least four of them, will do you just fine for firewall protection. I personally recommend either ZoneAlarm or Sygate, but please try to understand, you need more than just a firewall to protect yourself. You also need to practice safe computing, called in some circles "practicing safe Hex". A firewall can only protect you from "baddies" that you do not allow. If you go to a website, you have given that website your permission to go thru your firewall, to bypass the firewall's protection. Gaming and porns sites are the worst for downloading the "baddies". Games and porn are just the bait; the real reason that they want you to come is so they can download lots of other stuff while you are at their site. Remember, if you surf to a site, you allow that site to throw anything at you that it wants. At that point you would need an up-to-date anti-virus and anti-Trojan to catch the garbage being thrown at you. I also personally recommend regular scanning of your system with both AdAware and Spybot or another respected adware/spyware program. Good luck.
which program will protect my computer from all that bad stuff out there
