Windows "What is it with the Windows Vista Firewall and its refusal to go away? All our PCs are secured behind two firewalls: a hardware firewall and Microsoft ISA Server. The only traffic that gets in is the traffic that we want to get in. Now we can appreciate having the firewall on by default; but after turning it off over 20 times, it's getting to be too much."

Sorry, but the author says that because he has two layers of filtering on the WAN that the PC firewall is not necessary. If one PC becomes compromised inside the LAN, a worm could easily spread through the network. Not to mention that internal users are a far larger threat than external these days..
