to my knowledge the AVG firewall is bidirectional (filters both inbound and outbound) and is a bit more robust than the windows firewall so you should use it instead of the windows firewall
as far as the settings go...that's kind of up to what you want to do with the computer, how secure you want to be, and what level of interaction you want to have with the firewall
IMO (this goes for any firewall) the best setting model is the "block all, allow some" method...where you set the firewall at it's highest settings and block all traffic to begin with, then only allow the stuff you know you want... this requires a bit of knowledge about network traffic and applications so it can be confusing to set up for someone who isn't experienced, but it's the most secure way to use a firewall
some people go the opposite route and allow all and block some...IMO this is the same as not having a firewall...

AVG internet security has its own firewall - which mean it will disable my firewall in my laptop. Should i disable AVG firewall or leave it that way? And what setting should i put for the firewall?
