How to Protect Your Computer With a Firewall

Steps

  1. Chose a Firewall
    • Choosing the right Firewall is an important step. You will need to decide if you want a simple and easy-to-use firewall, or a firewall where you can configure everything it does.
    • Check Point Software makes a free firewall for home users. It is a very powerful firewall but it may not work on older hardware.
    • is a free for home use firewall from the Comodo Group. With this firewall you can change a lot of settings, but is not best for people who want a simple to use firewall.
  2. If you do not want to use a free firewall and have some money you can go buy a full security suite, almost all security suites now have firewalls built in.
  3. After choosing a suite install it according to the company’s instructions.These instructions can normally be found from the firewalls website.
  4. After the firewall installs it will most likely require a reboot.Reboot the computer and watch for any pop-ups from the firewall.
  5. Read any pop-ups that appear on the computer after the restart, accept all of them from programs you use and trust.
  6. If you see any pop-ups appear and you don't know what they are for go to your favorite search engine and type in the name of the program.Look for a source that says what the program does and decide what action to take upon what the website says.
  7. Your computer should now be secure with the firewall, when it blocks any hacker attacks it will pop-up and alert you

    if you wish to turn off your firewall just go to Start, scroll down to Windows System > Control Panel > System and Security > Windows Firewall. Select Turn Windows Firewall on or off. You might be asked for an admin password or to confirm your choice.
