If it's a good firewall, it should turn itself on when you boot up. However, if it is not such a good firewall, it won't. I believe that if it is a hardware firewall, it should be on anyway. I'm not too sure though.

Are you sure you dont mean turn my firewall off why would you need one to download something that I think comes with one of windows updates.

Uh, ZA5 sucks under SP2. The MS Firewall works fine for most users, my only gripe is it doesnt stop outgoing traffic.

Personally, I recommend Norton Firewall. It scans e-mails, out-going traffic and in-coming traffic. It's very secure as well.

Yeah it is. Like most other commercial security systems, as long as you didnt piss of mitnick you'll be fine. The test lists you see of different securityapps are nonobjective and usually doesnt tell the tale as it should be.

Port controll, e-mail scan, popup block, trojan protection is all you need as long as you keep them up-to-date.
