Firewall suggestion for XP

Hello all,

I know this is a windows 7 forum but I am wondering if anyone can give me some advice please?

I am currently fixing my brothers old XP pc and was wondering if there are any good free firewalls? It has to be lightweight because its not the fastest of machines and also easy to use as my brother is no expert.

Thanks in advance

Comodo firewall is pretty good. When it comes to allowing connections or not, Comodo will just ask, and all he has to do is click yes or no. Nothing too technical about that
