I need a firewall that will block popups, prevent viruses and be able to work with my p2p programs easily....by that I mean...not be a major headache to install, setup or actually use. I need one that works well and provides decent protection.
I use emule, Piolet, Newsgroups, Limewire pro
Does anyone have any suggestions?
I have win xp pro for my OS
