Because I'm paranoid about stuff like that. Actually with the always on broad-band connections everyone has now you need something more than just anit spy-ware stuff and anit-virus. Firewalls keep hackers out and others from accessing your computer without you knowing it. It basically monitors information sent and received through your internet connection for such unwanted access attempts. Yes, it's sometimes annoying, but the benefits far outweigh the hassel IMO. I guess I got too technical there, just FYI.
Thanks for the links fellas, I'm gonna use the XP one for now until I get another.
