You can also try Comodo Firewall, I use it on my computers and it works great.

Comodo is free and you don't have to renew it every year.

Their web site is: http://personalfirewall.comodo.com/

Zone Alarm or Sygate get my vote. Does your router have a built in hardware firewall? Those tend to be some of the least intrusive I've ever seen. I'm a little curious why the Windows firewall is slowing your computer down. It didn't take much to slow down my old 450mhz Pentium 3, but XP Pro SP2 and the firewall that comes with it didn't hurt it at all. Is there something else going on there?

Good and well, since we all use these konfounded komputors.

But.

Willmiller posted the exact same question on a totally unrelated board that I happen to
subscribe to. First post there also. Makes me wonder how many other boards he spammed.

That's why I didn't give any more entries.
