    Hi carioca :)

    An opinion (only):

    LNS on each PC of your local network,
    Use the LNS Enhanced rules
    (For local network config. check on the LNS web site...)

    Nothings more. With LNS + a router/HW Firewall you're protected...

    but

    Don't forget that a FW is one of your protection layers:

    - Keep Windows , drivers and applications up-to-date

    - Have an anti-virus updated and set for the "On Access" protection

    - Have some a anti-spywares. Example:

    Spyware Blaster : to immunise against malwares
    Spy Bot Search & Destroy : immunise and on demand scan
    Windows Defender: On access ...

    - Have a well feeded HOSTS file:

    MVP's hosts file http://www.mvps.org/winhelp2002/

    - Use Firefox with the extension NoScript (and don't use IE...)

    - Don't forget the safe-hex:

    Best regards

    :)
