    I am sick of messing about with firewalls, so I have installed Prevx1.

    Do you guys think that with Windows Firewall running and Kaspersky 6 Anti Virus and AVG Anti Spyware and Prevx1, that my system is as secure as if I ran another third party firewall?

    Cant be bothered any more with the endless problems with these firewalls, unless it is really necessary.

    :D

    I forgot to add that Im behind a Router as well.

    it is secure. also, since youre running behind a router you could drop the Windows Firewall.

    I'm also behind a Router Firewall and use Prevx1 with Antivir Premium. I love installing and trying out new software, but Prevx1 has stayed on my PC for awhile now. This is because I can't justify using a Third Party Firewall with Prevx1 and a good AV behind a Router FW. I even trusted using AVG AV with Prevx1, but couldn't help to take advantage of the 6 months free trial of Antivir Personal Premium I found here in Wilders. I always have Windows Firewall enabled though since I'm on the wireless end of a network that includes my wife's PC. I have been looking for an excuse to use the latest version of PC Tools Firewall however, so if anyone disagrees here please chime in. LOL.
