AFAIK Microsoft's Firewall only prohibits inbound intrusions, but it is
better than nothing. From my experience "The Others" require quite
extensive user setup, 'for the un-experienced home users', and as such they
elect not to run them - or set them up improperly. For a free firewall that
works on the windows platform you can check out
