Firewall for Vistas please?

How do I know whether my pc has a firewall installed. If not, which freebie firewall will suit the windows vista?

vista comes with a firewall included, I use only this as of yet I have had no problems. To check that yours is active go to Control panel, click on classic view ( easier to find firewall) click on firewall icon. This will tell you if it is active, if not activate it. Many members use others the choice is quite large. Zone alarm,Comodo, Kerio etc.

Vista will, I promise you, let you know if there is no firewall running unless you physically tell it not too. Odds are its running and its fine!
