Honestly, a firewall good one like Tiny Personal Firewall pro is one of the few things that can actually protect your system.
It has multiple levels of manageable security settings, alerts for when virtually anything is happening inside of your computer, and a trust program which allows you select any kind of program running in your computer, even the ones that slip past execution and embed themselves in the kernel, the ones that hide, the ones that have no 'task' in the Task Manager, it can even stop.
Heh.......Sorry, take the hackers advice, I know how the exploits works inside an out, take a trip to www.securiteam.com... .
I heard about Tiny Personal Firewall, have tried it and was impressed. Checkpoint Zonealarm is decent too once configured correctly. Thanks for the link
I use Comodo Firewall, and have never had any problems.

Worms like Conficker not only ricochet around the Internet at lightning speed, they harness infected computers into unified systems called botnets, which can then accept programming instructions from their clandestine masters. “If you’re looking for a digital Pearl Harbor, we now have the Japanese ships steaming toward us on the horizon,” said Rick Wesson, chief executive of Support Intelligence, a computer security consulting firm based in San Francisco.

It will be a virus that will cause us to lose our internet freedoms. Possibly a digital black flag op?
Again, keep your ears and eyes open for "digital pearl harbor." You will see it a lot (more than usual) over the upcoming years.
