i have to strongly agree here, don't just rely on windows firewall to protect your computer..cause it won't.

FireWalls DO slow your net connection. But not my much!

Gotta love all these claims about Norton firewall, Windows firewall, etc being garbage and not working.

Why not give some concrete information as to why it's junk not just an opinion with no facts or reasons to support your opinion?...........Sure is alot of mis-information and hearsay on this site.
Just because you don't like the name doesn't make it garbage!
