  1. I have not used a fire wall for years but with the amount of hacking and such going on today on the net. I am wondering if there is a good software Fire Wall.
    I am running Window 7 sp1 and use sattalite internet provider because where I am at there is nothing else.

    I have W7 & I use the firewall that came with it which I understand is just fine. I would say as long as you keep your computer security programs updated & clean, you should be fine.
    Get your security software from here http://www.techspot.com/downloads/security/

    Unless somebody in here says different, stick with the W7 default firewall.

    There is already built-in firewall in Windows operating systems. Just make sure it is enabled.
