A firewall is a specially programmed computer that is designed to prevent unauthorised access to or from a private network. It connects a local network to the Internet and all messages entering or leaving the local network pass through the firewall. The firewall then examines each message and blocks access to those that do not meet the desired security criteria.

You can download a free firewall or firewall software online, which provides a degree of free internet security and computer protection, however it is best to have other security protection on your computer as well, such as Norton Anti-Virus.
