Is Windows 7 Firewall good enough for home use?
The last version of Windows I maintained at home before moving to Linux was XP. It was necessary to ensure you had AV, Firewall and malware checkers installed and running.
My mother has purchased a W7 laptop and asked me to "make it safe from all those nasties on the Internet". I've turned on Automatic Updates and installed Avast already but is there anything else I should do apart from regular maintenance?
Should I download a recommend Firewall program or will the W7 Firewall be fine?
