Windows 7 firewall

Is Win7 built in Firewall any good or should I be looking at a third party one. I always used Zone Alarm free, but it states that I need Service pack 1 from MS, they haven't released it yet as far as I am aware.

W7;s firewall is good enough especially if your using a router as that will have a hardware firewall as well

Use 7's firewall and Microsoft security essentials for real time protection, back it up with either Superantispyware or Malwarebytes free for a on demand scan and you have enough protection.

Thanks for that it has put my mind to rest. Yes I use a router.
Take care.
