Vista does come with a firewall and is active by default providing automatic monitoring of all incoming connection requests Accessible from the Control Panel, the firewall is intended to protect any type of Internet connection against abuse If I were you, just stay with the Windows Vista Firewall for the time being because there is nothing else out there that's going to be any better as of this moment.
