Firewall - hardware and software?

  Bosa 14:07 19 Nov 2006

I connect to the internet via a router which feeds two pc's. Do we actually need to run a software firewall as well? Both PC's have Norton Internet Security (anti-virus and firewall) which will soon be due for renewal. Should I switch to anti-virus only, or stick with the included firewall too?

Any guidance is much appreciated.

I use both and sometimes stuff still gets past. You can get free fw's which are as good as paid ones, like Comodo click here
