Hello, I purchased the Acer Aspire One Netbook and it has a trial version of Mcafee installed. I already installed Avast Anti Virus, and I was wondering if I remove the Mcafee Firewall, would Windows 7 Starter have its own built in Firewall to offer me with adequate protection? Thanks.

Just make sure you use the MCPR.EXE uninstaller for the uninstallation of the Mcafee trial or Avast won't work properly.

Because you have a notebook I would say that the windows firewall should be fine, in fact, that's all I have used for years now as I also use a router which has a built in hardware firewall.
It's your call.

Some HELP in posting on Computing.net plus free progs and instructions Cheers

Thanks, and of course since it is wireless the firewall from the router still applies?
