I think it will be a good idea to still get a 3rd party firewall/antivirus because of the fact that even though XP sp2 has a new integrated firewall, it wont stop everything that does not need to be on your PC Also, it is very recommended that you have some sort of antivirus even for minor surfing You may never know what kind of viruses may be on the loose especially from E-mail attachments I think it is very recommended that you get Norton Internet Security 2005 as it includes Norton Antivirus 2005 so that way you will be protected from outside intruders and viruses.
