zonealarm/avg9 conflicts?

Was having problems(slow/freezing etc) with AVG9(free version) until recently but all seemed well now.Updated Zonealarm(again free version) a couple of weeks ago and again had problems with slow/freezing browsing etc.Got fed up with it and uninstalled Zonealarm,relying on Windows firewall.Had a look around and tried Ashampoo(free) firewall,all seemed ok but then wouldn't let me update AVG,so uninstalled that as well.Can anyone recommend a good,solid free firewall(nothing too technical/easy to use!) that works well with AVG9 and Windows Defender so that I am not relying solely on my Windows firewall.Many thanks.

Quite a selection to choose from - I use the paid for version of Sunbelt Pers Firwall ...

I use PCTools (free) firewall, and Avira (free ) anti virus.Having read a lot of adverse comments on AVG since they went to v9, I would ditch it. Many reccomend MS Security Essentials (MSSE) as an anti virus, with some malware protection too. On balance I reccomend PC Tools firewall, MSSE,and SpywareBlaster, Malawarebytes and on a 32 bit set up Superantispyware.All free.
