How can a firewall protect my computer?

Firewall Software

The only way to make your computer completely secure is to turn it off or disconnect it from the Internet. Since that is counterproductive, the questions becomes, "how to make your computer 99% secure when it is connected?" Not having protection is like leaving your car running with the doors unlocked and the keys in it which a thief might interpret as "please steal me". Locking a car, using a "club" or installing a security system makes stealing a car more difficult. Internet security software, firewall software and privacy products provide adequate protection by making it difficult for "outlaws" to find and gain entry to your computer.
