I have a brand new vista running ultimate sp1 and eset smart security 3.0.645.0...

Eset has a firewall protection system.
Should I turn off the windows firewall in the security center and just run the eset?

The set up guide seems to say this is the right set up and all the "lights are green" according to the security center... and things seem to be fine, but I'd like to double check.

Secondly, Should I also run AVG or Malwarebytes or is this eset complete enough?

Thanks

Do not run more than one firewall for the same reasons that you do not run two virus packages on the computer at the same time.
Anyway with multiple firewalls it's entirely possible to block an application in one, allow it in another and then partially block it in a third, the net result being it's anybody's guess as to what'll happen and it's about as good as not having any firewall at all.
