Hi
Zone alarm is ok for people that are new to security, its free and easy to use.
Sygate is another, which I find good, there is a free version. A lot of people swear by Tiny Personal Firewall, there’s no free version but there is a trail same with norton.

Any one of the zone alarms http://www.zonelabs.com/store/content/home.jsp or a Norton package http://www.symantec.com/sabu/nis/npf/

i use sygate on all my Windows boxes. The only bad thing (or good thing depending on how you look at it) is that it blocks windows file sharing (CIFS) by default.
