If it already comes with a built in firewall, it's alright to disable the one built into Windows.

ok now im confused, why would windows sell you extra firewall if the operating system firewall is alot better than the 3rd party one if you will.

bill gates : hey lets build a firewall into windows to make it more secure

microsoft : hey lets sell people a firewall thats worse than the one we put on the operating system.
