Windows Vista does have a firewall, it is a slightly better version than the one built into XP you can find it in the security center. However, some say it is good and others say it is bad. This is a list of products that work with Vista including firewalls http://www.iexbeta.com/wiki/index.php/Wind...lls_.2F_IDS.27s

Do you have any other protection software on the system?
Regards,

Alan.
