Windows firewall should be...

by SmartAceW0LF In reply to firewall

more than adequate. Especially if you are using a router. All the rest -in my opinion- are far more hungry for resources and bandwidth than they are worth. Generally, they are more annoying than most malware.

Windows firewall

by Larbakium In reply to firewall

I would use windows firewall. It has been quite effective with me.
Considering out-of-the-box configuration, some firewalls out there will have a better web protection engine, when it comes to detect spam or harm webdomains... but this could also cause you to have more pop-ups warning or setup exeption rules about sites you actually want to visit...
I am not saying this is bad or good!! just depend how you see and want to handle your protection... For me it has been enough.

Windows Firewall +2

I also use Avira on my new build desktop with Windows Firewall, and haven't had any issues with comptability or with blocking the wrong apps.
