Webroot Desktop Firewall FREE

Two-way firewall protection keeps your data IN and intruders OUT

A firewall is a critical component, and Webroot Desktop Firewall secures your computer from Internet threats and reduces the risks of being a victim of online crimes.

Unlike the Windows XP and Vista Firewall, Webroot Desktop Firewall combines intelligent firewall technology with intrusion prevention for inbound and outbound protection that is both powerful and easy to use.

* Monitors Internet traffic in and out of your PC for better protection
* Makes your PC invisible to online scammers looking for easy targets
* Prevents remote access Trojans from hijacking your PC

I don't use because:
1. Router has a firewall buit-in
2. Software firewall can't protect you much; because it can't be disabled or bypass easily by a trojan/malware.
So Anti Virus/Anti Spyware should be good enough.
BTW, i'm not using Antivirus/Spyware either

So you do use a firewall - OP's poll did not mention Hardware or software....

Mines are mounted high enough, unless you jump from a chopter on the roof, you will be taped before you get the ladder and cut the wire. But it'd cost you way more to rent the chopter compared to the stuff you can steal from my place. Heck, it won't even worth renting a minivan :D

I do :)

The Title is "Webroot Desktop Firewall", so I assumed it's software firewall

Personally I like Avira AntiVir and a router. I also have the winxp firewall running just out of habit. That is it. If I fear that my computer is infected I will run MalwareBytes or just AdAware. I have nothing running on my mac.

For clients I usually suggest something more robust like Avira and Comodo or AdAware AdWatch. I tell them to use Firefox and install AdBlockPlus and NoScript, which seems to help.
