    No bloat on my system. Windows built-in & router.

    Good to see both of these were top in the last poll.

    Linksys WRT54G2 router built-in firewall
    Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit built-in firewall

    It might be possible the Windows firewall get's replaced, depending on what I do when my current ESET NOD32 Antivirus ends, there are three possibilies:
    1. continuing current setup;
    2. replacing ESET NOD32 Antivirus by a free antivirus;
    3. upgrading to ESET Smart Security.

    I use the Firewall that's in my DrayTek 2820Vn Router, and the one in Eset Smart Security.

    PS > I forgot to check the HW firewall checkbox unfortunately!

    My answer is much like Swex, with the only difference that I use the Firewall in my ZyXEL's P-2802HW-I Router, and the firewall in Ess 4.
    Best Regards

    Always a router as a first line (for diffirent reasons including security ,too)
    Then either Windows Firewall or Norton's one

    I voted none by mistake. Was thinking only on software firewalls and selected none in a hurry, without giving any attention to all other options. :shifty:

    I think the Windows built-in firewall should suffice combined with MSE. Not to forget my hub/router firewall. I'm well bored with heavy AV suites! ;)

    I know a couple of people who rely on their router firewall only, although it was predominantly because they were having serious problems with their AV firewall (in both cases Norton) & so they disabled the firewall on their respective computers & relied on the router firewall. I should imagine it is just as good security-wise.

    That's only because I'm still restricted to using an old laptop (I described it in the K-Meleon thread) which has specific performance issues, making me need to disable everything that seems useless and/or that consumes CPU cycles and memory.

    So, I disabled the Windows XP Firewall service along with several other things.

    ((the router built-in FW always inspected the incoming network traffic and stealthed system ports before Windows Firewall; so Windows Firewall was already useless de facto even before I disabled its service))

    I don't hide that I would be more confident with using a solution such as NIS 2011 (that I bought for my new laptop) - but it requires more hardware power to function without noticeable impact.
