Opinions of PCTools Firewall and Anti virus free

I believe that these two products are so easy to use, but how do I know how effective they really are?

I think it depends on whether you spend a long time on the net and you are open to a lot of attacks I personally spend about an hour a day and run AVG 8 Free as my antivirus and Zone alarm as my firewall.
Windows firewall is switched off. I also do a frequent scan with Adaware. All free programmes. In about 5 years I have not had a virus, but I am a bit careful on what web sites I visit and keep away from any that I think might be a bit dodgy.
