Hi Ian, yes you need your firewall on but the windows one isn't up to much.
Take a read through this it should help you decide what you need.
As for your anti-virus, I'm unsure. :thumbsup:

The list of free firewalls in the article seems to be rather old. Comodo and Online Armor seem to be the most popular ones now, mainly because of their strong outbound protection and they are not even mentioned.
