    Free software or services to check XP security:

    Packet Sniffer: Want to stop or allow a service from using the net, use this packet sniffer and you'll see what ports and protocols are used, then block or allow them.

    Online firewall test, port scan: Check for open ports, addware and find out your IP address.

    Change or hide the information you send to websites: Allows you to change headers, prevent cookies, and tells you what is going on while you communicate with a site.
