Hey guys...what's up? My question is about the windows 7 firewall. Has anyone had any adverse situations with this version? How would you compare the windows 7 firewall to Zone Alarm's firewall (the free version)?

Thanks

You ask a common question for which you will receive varying opinions and recommendations. Please see Choosing a Firewall.

The Windows 7 firewall is good enough for a home user, go ahead with it.

Can you tell us how you connect to the Internet? Do you know if you use something like a NAT router?
