Go with Zonealarm, keep sticking with the free version throughout, it tries to get you to have the paid version during install

Run this first, then again after you install the firewall, then turn the XP one off

Go with the free version, it isn't a trial, see what you think. Most do not see the need to get the paid version.

OR

Run the free version for a while then get the trial of the pro version, see if you need the different things on Pro

OR

You can get a three month trial of McAfee Anti-Virus and Firewall
