Thanks for your reply.

I don't know what happened.  Where can I get the Private Firewall?

I would strongly suggest that if you don't understand all the software on your system and the functions they perform to stick with what ever firewall you have already otherwise you may end up in deeper waters than your abilities can handle ;)

I'm using Windows Firewall.  Would my router also have a firewall?

I don't understand all the software I have on my system go don't want to take a chance of messing anything up so leave well enough alone.

How would I find out whether or not my router has a firewall?

Think I'll my ISP provider and ask someone there.

Try using google and search for your router to get the specs.

If you ran the test and it told you that all of your ports are stealthed, what's the difference where the protection is coming from ???

This is good reading material.

http://www.howtogeek.com/122065/htg-explains-i-have-a-router-do-i-need-a-firewall/

Thank you for sending me the link.  Until I read  about the router I had no idea of how one worked.  I feel like my computer is pretty much protected.
