Internet Security Software Options for Vista

Girlfriend has just got a new laptop with Vista Home Premium which came with a 60 day trial of Norton Internet Security pre-installed. Although Norton works fine, we're keen to switch to something less bloated and resource hungry when the trial ends.

I use AVG Free and ZoneAlarm Free on my XP desktop PC which I'm quite happy with. However, I see ZoneAlarm is not yet Vista compatible and the other half would prefer an "all-in-one" solution like Norton. Having looked at the AVG website we see they do such a package, but I've no idea how good the AVG firewall is?

Although free software is nice it's not essential and the AVG option works out quite cheap - the package covers 3 PCs for 2 years (works out about £8 a year per PC).

Anyone here have experience of the AVG Internet Security Suite (home version) or know if it is any good? Failing that any recommendations for other alternatives?
