    I use windows vista ultimate and have the integrated firewall turned on.
    Is this good protection?
    I just read on a dutch website that this firewall (now) also blocks outgoing
    traffic and not only incoming. Can anybody tell me if this is correct (please
    give me a reliable source then..)

    If anybody knows for sure (be reliable please) that the windows firewall is
    not enough protection, please explain why and, which one then is recommended?
    (comodo is nice but makes me make 10000 clicks per day..)

    Thanks,

    Jerry
