Unluckily, there is no relation between antivirus and (windows) firewall. So antivirus won't help with your firewall issues.

What antivirus are you using now?

I had encountered the same problem. Then I searched and found the Optimodefender antivirus software. It's a great and effective antivirus software for XP and Windows both. I'm using regularly and I'm so happy with it. Therefore I suggest you to use optimodefender antivirus software.

Thanks Grin
