one or all firewalls

Dear Keyboarders.
Recently got Mcafee Anti-Virus,Obviously it has it's own Firewall, which is active, but my question is, Do i have to run Windows own Firewall along side it. I turned the Windows one off and told me my PC was no longer protected.
Does one or more FW clog or confuse the system.
Anyone Help.

No you don't have to run the Windows firewall alongside McAfee. You can stop the "no longer Protected" message by going to Control Panel, Security Centre and clicking on Change the way Security Centre alerts me, Don't notify me and don't display the icon.
