The firewall from XP is very weak... I use ZoneAlarm and it does a great job. You also mention sygate and it also is very good.

Download ZoneAlarm and turn off XP firewall

The XP personal firewall is pretty basic and most of todays routers also have integrated firewall funtionality. Neither are true rules based, stateful packet inspection type but for the hoem user it's more than enough.
