For people who do not like the 'complication' that using a software firewall can sometimes bring, windows firewall combined with antivirus and antimalware programs can be a good alternative.

 

Windows 7 seems to have improved its firewall

Also xp firewall can be altered somewhat to 'tighten' things up

You will always get people who like to tinker with settings etc and software firewall can do this, but with safe surfing and good antivirus etc (plus sandboxie if you can) you can be safe with windows build it one.
