Firewall intrusions

It's barely been 20 day's since I formatted my PC and I've already got 5000 intrusions on my Firewall. If you are on a large LAN, your XP can't survive without a firewall.

My current config:

A good Firewall/Antivirus combo, with the antivirus definitions updated, means that you are virtually secure. I've seen fresh XP install's connected to a network get infected within minutes of the first boot. I actually disconnected the Ethernet cable while I was getting my system up to date, configuring the firewall.
