I was wondering if Windows Firewalls was enough or should a person use a different software firewall (zonealarm).

I tried both the Windowz fire wall and zoom alarm. Each has benefits and flaws.

It you have an internet connection that goes through a router or DSL Modem, get one with a hardware firewall. The hardware types are the strongest available. At www.grc.com, my hardware firewall archives the highest stealth protection possible.

This is food for though, hopefully something will work well for you.
