Sharing firewall etc.

I have 2 computers sharing an internet connection. Will my firewall, anti-virus and spyware programmes which are on one computer be ok for both, or will I have to install them on the second computer?

If both computers are sharing the internet connection via a router with a built in hardware firewall then both will be ptotected. If the only firewall that you have is a software firewall then you will need to install one on each computer. You will also need separate anti-virus and spyware programmes.

My second computer is running Windows ME. Can anyone suggest a 2 way firewall that would be suitable.
