Windows Firewall should definitly be used...Specially if you don't have another one installed...The only drawback with the Windows Firewall is that it protects you from stuff coming into your computer not stuff going out...There are a lot of members here that feel if you use a good Anti-Virus and Anti-Spyware program along with this firewall that you shouldn't have many issues. The advantages of having additional firewall protection (either the software or the hardware kind) is that they protect information from coming and going...In other words, if someone was to somehow try to gain access to personal information via Trojans and the like they won't be able to retrieve it if you are using a firewall outside of Windows...It is pretty much up to you...If you feel secure with Windows Firewall by all means use it...At least it provides some protection...
