Get [ ]ZoneAlarm. It's freeware and better than most, if not all, of the commercial firewalls available.

There's no such thing as complete protection from hackers, but ZoneAlarm should stop all but the really hardcore hackers.

If your just on a dial up and not networked(not AOL because what I mention here wont work I think) you should be able to just delete all networking clients and protocols and you should be pretty much safe without a firewall.Below is a link that explains this.


If you do this your system should actually boot faster also.
