AVG is good, free or paid for, but there are quite a few current recent postings from people having problems with the update system. I prefer avast! click here for a posting comparing the two and click here for the avast download page.
In a recent test in another PC mag, ZoneAlarm pro was rated the best pay for firewall & Kerio4 the best free one click here

Both very good, although I definately prefer Avast antivirus click here once its up and running it just looks after itself no problems.
