AVG 7.5 Free Edition,and Zone Alarm 7 Free Firewall.You can get these from FileHippo.Com.

I use the same as pac73 they work well.
Don't like AVG 7.5 then get AVAST. Some prefer the way it works and looks over AVG. Choice is yours.
Theres not really an overall winner.
If you want a top performer you will have to pay and the best anti virus out there is probably NOD32. But AVG has kept me safe for about 3 years now as has Zone Alarm firewall.

I don't like Zone Alarm - always found it really 'greedy' on processor and RAM!

I'm also looking for a program which does a similar job to Norton's 'Speed Disk' - Any recommendations for that too?

You,ll find the things you want on Filehippo.

Diskeeper lite is recommended by many for defragging.

Avast AV - click here
Comodo Firewall - click here
Something like System Safety Monitor or Spyware Terminator to harden the firewall more against being taken from behind. click here

Those run together well and make a good basis for other more specific stuff you may want to add.
