Yes, Firewall can help you.but........
Bro, If you have studied the behavior of TROJANS, there are many of them which are coded to bypass your FIREWALL settings. If you are programmer and has done some network programming, you must be aware that how difficult is it to bypass Windows Xp's firewall and if you are hacker, you will be knowing there are many way to bypass even 3rd party firewalls too.
So, firewall won't help you always. You need to be aware what is happening to your system.
