Windows defender is hopeless, the others arent firewalls. Theyre AV programs

Install Zonealarm or Comodo. Or NOD32's firewall, if you want to pay for it

Altho, I think Vista's firewall is a bit better than XP's

All those programs are good (with the exception of Defender). You need a proper firewall though, like Speedy said.

If Windows Defender is off, what should replace it?

Ad-aware?

The other day both Avast and Spybot S&D couldn't detect an autorun.inf virus file from my flash drive while Ad-aware, surprisingly, managed to find and remove it.

It was not a false alert in case you were thinking of that.

Cheers :)
