This is my first post on this list and I know relatively little about security for personal computers.

I will be buying DefenseWall. Is it suggested that I also use a separate firewall (for example, Windows Firewall, ZoneAlarm, etc.)?

Thanks again.

Hello MRM1233

and Welcome at GSFs. Enjoy your time here.
To answer your question about Firewalls please have a look here to understand or getting a first impression how a firewall works.

And here to compare how an IDS/HIPS system works. For more details about Ilya's software, please visit his place SoftSphere Technologies Support Forums and here DefenseWall HIPS / Personal Firewall

The folks in there will answer your questions and will help you.
