Firewall - suggestions please

Good morning.

I'm upgrading to a new computer in the next few months that will have Vista as it's OS.

I'm going to use Avast! as my antivirus software but can anyone suggest a good firewall to use?

I've been using Zone Alarm with Win XP but really want to secure my new PC on many levels. So any suggestions for spyware etc are also gratefully received.

Many thanks

Vistas own firewall is ok, as it now works both ways, unlike Xp.
Adaware works ok on vista as does ccleaner to get rid of rubbish.

I use Sygate - prefer it to Zone alarm, but it's a personal thing.
