Windows Vista Firewall - Page 2

post #11 of 13
Basically everyone's right. Get a router and use the standard Windows Firewall, and you're genrally safe. Peer Guardian isn't a bad thing to have on your side either. Routers generally block "things" besides your standard "internets usage" Just as long as you don't open useless ports that lead to exploitable programs, you're fine.

But what's wrong with ZA? It's actually pretty decent.

Don't like the GUI + Features and too limited when free..
