    I use a device called a router.

    You couldn't pay me enough to have a useless program running 24/7.

    I even disable the Vista/Windows 7 firewall.

    I use my router, hardware firewall + AVG internet security. :)

    I guess that all depends on if you want to go online.

    A hardware firewall like a router is all you really need.


    You only need a software firewall running if you're ultra paranoid and it gives you a secure feeling; don't mind useless software gyrating away 24/7, and/or don't understand malware/spyware/trojans, etc...

    IE 8 has smart-screen filtering and if i ever visit any infected website, my anti-virus program warns me.
    Also Grim, i think US has the most number of infected websites than any other country. Moreover, i use Internet only for visiting vista and seven forums and checking my emails and stuffs. Still, its recommended to use a firewall.
