Do I still need utilities like Zone Alarm, Cookie Wall , and NOBO after instlling a router?

Question

I just installed a COMPUSA Broadband Router - works great!

Two computers on home network. Both have full access.

Q. Do I still need Zone Alarm? Cookie Wall? NOBO?

Doesn't the router do everything these little utilities do?

If I still need them. can you tell me why?

Thanks.

David

Well, while I don't know what Zone alarm and NOBO are I can make a pretty good guess on what Cookie Wall is, it probably blocks cookies And while I am not familiar with these utilities I know a router is only responsible for routing packets to other networks out side yours and nothing else, I am answering this question from a PC that is connected to a router and I still recieve tons of cookies.
