I would recommend Comodo if you want the best protection available but it can be rather difficult to understand for novices(luckily they have a great support forum), ZA Free is the most novice friendly firewall i can think off right now but it offers very poor leak protection. Another very simple firewall that i am currently running on my Vista rig is PCTools Firewall Plus and it's almost as easy to use as ZA Free but has better leak protection. I would advise against Sygate, as it is no longer being actively developed.

I think I'll stick with PCTools Firewall plus too. Thanks Darth.

There are many forum members using comodo firewall and that works wel with avast and did I mention its free ;D

Comodo also comes highly rated in some firewall leak tests.
