    Hi everyone,

    I jkust installed windows security essentials.

    It covers spyware, antiviruses... but is it a firewall to? In other words, should I turn off the Windows Firewall?

    I hope you mean you installed Microsoft Security Essentials (bear in mind that there's a scareware out there that is named similar to 'windows security essentials').

    Anyway, do not disable Windows Firewall.
    MSE was designed to work in union with it.
