If this is a software based firewall there shouldn't be a problem with un-installing it using the un-install utility that came with it or Add/Remove in windows.
The concern would be once it's no longer there you will not have any protection unless you enable the built-in windows firewall (which will protect most nasty things from going into your system but not things going out).
As far as your internet connection is involved, it would depend on how you are connected. If you are connected through a router or DSL modem you may have to reconfigure some settings (I don't know for sure).
The very least that you should do is set a new system restore point...That will help you in case something goes wrong.
If you do remove your firewall I recommend stocking up on good anti-virus and anti-spyware programs and keep them running and updated.
Does this look like an OldGrumpyBastard or what?
