The current best freeware firewall is Comodo Personal Firewall.  Google it.

It has problems but it also potential.  There are better free anti virus
applications that
are suggested such as as AntiVir.

I couple of months ago I asked them the following series of questions...

Q: Is your AV solution ICSA certified ?
ans: Not now

Q: Is the software certified by any industry standard organizations ?
ans: Not now

Q: Do you partner with the Anti Phishing Working Group ?
ans: Not now

Q: Who writes the anti virus Engine and Signature files ?
ans: Comodo employee

Q: How many signatures are in the anti virus library ?
ans: 176983
{ NOTE: this number reflect the dat of the question and has risen since then }

Q: Does this library cover mostly viruses and Trojans or does it also cover
non-viral
malware such as adware, spyware, BHOs, etc. ?
ans: It also covers some of non-viral malwares

Q: How often are signatures generated ?
ans:  daily

Q: Do you have a virus library encyclopedia for lookup on the effects,
distribution,
modifications made and other attributes of a given infector ?
ans: Not now

Q: Is your software just a GUI based application or do you have a command line
anti virus
scanner ?
ans: Currently just GUI based

Q: Is your product MAPI or VIM compliant ?
ans: Not now

My first recommendation is that you need to spend some money on a
router,then we can talk about freeware. Most of the programs listed on
my site are free(see below).
