Hi mad mike,

The one highly recommended by everyone is FREE from click here and is called Zone Alarm. It's an old established company and the product works well. I've used it for some years now and had no trouble at all. It's fairly easy to configure and comes with a talk you through tutorial which sets it up as you want it. If you have any problems, get back.

P.S. If you are looking for a firewall it's just occurred to me you might be looking for a virus checker too. There's a very good FREE one at click here called AntiVirusGold, very easy to set up and update. A recent review in Micromart rated it equal second with Trend PC-cillin and higher than Kaspersky, both of which cost dosh.

Mad_Mike:
I don't know about Win 98 other than SE. I have used Zone Alarm (and recently went to Zone Alarm Pro -- which is Not free) with Win98SE for years. It works very well.
