      hardware firewall??? i am sorry but i almost felt from the armchair laughing.

      let me explain you that hardware firewalls are used only in very big corporate networks, veeeeeeery big networks. They are designed to provide protection from intentional hacking and no one in the world will try to break in your home computer.

      regarding your question about the security i can give you few advices

      - regularly update windows
      - use some famous AV software - avg/kaspersky/nod/bitdefender and update it regularly
      - do not download cracks, porn.
      - do not visit similar webpages advertising such stuff because nowadays there are techniques to install malware on your computer just by visiting the page


      to support my opinion... well i work in AVG so u can believe me :)
