Windows Firewall is what you need for your computers.
If you were to get a 3rd party Firewall, you would be asked whether to
"allow, disallow, this time only, all the time, etc", for any internet
actions that your Programs initiate..
As you have said, you want something that is easy to use, and works!
Windows Firewall "knows" the answers.
Mick Murphy - Qld - Australia
We have just received a new notebook with Vista Premium sp1 installed. Is the.
Windows Firewall sufficient to protect incoming/outgoing information?
Some people have told us Yes; others have said No.
We are senior citizens and very unfamiliar with computers and firewalls, etc.
If the Windows Firewall is not sufficient, is there a FREE firewall that
someone could suggest to use as a substitute firewall? One that would be easy
to install and configure, as we don't know anything about firewalls, etc.
Thanks for any assistance.
We are using Verizon DSL that is connected to our desktop which has WinXP.
We are using modem/router and the notebook is connected wirelessly (I believe
that is what it is called) to it.
