Appreciate input from our expert mods on this question: Webroot has a  firewall which compliments Windows Firewall. Would a 3rd party firewall be better??  Would ones PC be more secure instead of Windows Firewall??  Or would a third party firewall be incompatible with Webroot?? 
      The are some great firewalls out there, however what are your thoughts on this?

Appreciate your insight on this. Based on what you have said , i am in good shape as I am behind a router and of course Windows Firewall along with Webroot. With that said I am satified. Thanks again.:D

As most people use a Router and Windows firewall is great for inbound protection and WSA firewall is only a outbound most users don't need a third party firewall I just find most other firewalls out there are to bloated IMO.

Good question!  As I do not use additional firewall software I do not know all of the answers, but I found a KB article that might help!
