Firewall is basically a security management shield or computer protective shield. It helps regulating the applications on your computer which use internet connection to provide various services to users. Firewall also helps regulating the contents that you want to see on the internet. So, firewalls are important, but it is important to configure them properly. If firewall configuration has not been done properly, software like Quicken would show up error.
