Internet Connection Firewall

Microsoft added a firewall to Windows XP called Internet Connection Firewall (ICF). To enable it, go to Control Panel | Network Connections and right-click on a connection name. Select Properties, then click on the Advanced tab for each of your connections, and enable Protect my computer and network by limiting or preventing access to this computer from the Internet. Unfortunately, ICF doesn't provide nearly as much protection as tools like Symantec's Norton Internet Security. ICF examines only inbound network traffic; it can't control programs on your system that are sending information out to the Internet.
