    I have just upgraded my router to a Belkin N1 ADSL wireless modem router-apparently it has a built in firewall. Do I need bother with Zonealarm as well? I've always had 'free' Zonealarm but what with its constant upgrades and so on I could well do without it if its superfluous. And if so what about Windows own firewall?

    Windows firewall only protects one way. Comodo firewall is pretty good...that is what I use and it is free.
