I was wondering if Windows Firewall is enough to protect my systems, if not any suggestions?

I also have a BT firewall at the router level.

Yes a NAT router and Windows default firewall is a good combination.

How Can I Reduce My Risk to Malware?

I have been reading over quite a bit of this subject here. I am glad Bleeping Computer has so much information. I am quite advanced when it comes to firewalls, AV, etc. I recently was using a front end to Windows Firewall and it caused a major head ache for me with the last windows update. My store, all apps just quit working. My Action Center would not work as well as the start menu. 


I ended up doing a Windows "refresh" and got things working (removed the front end prior). After reading here on this subject I will just use Windows Firewall with my Windows 10 and feel completely safe about it. I am behind an NAT router with its own firewall as well.
