ChrisRLG has provided a link with pretty much all you will need to answer your request.

If however you are also asking for the purpose of recommendations to clients when you are working on logs then you will of course need a canned speech, one for Anti Virus programs and one for Firewalls.

Here's one of the canned speeches I use when I see no evidence of a Firewall in a clients HijackThis log, you can hunt around the canned speeches here and when you find one for an Anti Virus recommendation ask the person who has it in their canned messages - I'm sure they will let you use it. ;)

Looking at your HijackThis log I do not see evidence of a Firewall.
This may be because you are using the Windows Firewall.
The Windows Firewall only checks incoming traffic to your system so is only doing half the job a good Firewall should be doing.
It is very important that you have a Firewall if you are using the Internet.
I strongly recommend that you disable the Windows Firewall if you are using it and try one of my suggested Firewalls below.

For your reference here is the link to some very good free firewalls

Kerio http://www.sunbelt-software.com/Kerio.cfm
Zone Alarm http://www.zonelabs.com/store/content/home.jsp
Jetico Personal Firewall http://www.jetico.com/
Comodo http://www.personalfirewall.comodo.com/

For more information on firewalls see http://www.malwareremoval.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=56#56

When you have selected which Firewall to download
  • Download the program to your desktop
  • Disconnect from the Internet
  • Disable the Windows Firewall, if you are unsure of how to do this here is a tutorial to help http://www.utmem.edu/helpdesk/sp2/sp2firewall.htm
  • Double click the Firewall download icon on your desktop to start the installation process.
  • You may be asked to reboot your system to complete the installation process, please do so if required.
  • You may now reconnect to the Internet.
