Anti-Virus

Pick Only One.

AVG Free
AVAST

Then add the following:

Spybot Search and Destroy

AdAware

AVG Anti-Spyware

WinPatrol

Stinger ( on demand Trojan scanner )

All the above are FREE and will give you a well rounded package...been running the above for Years with ZERO issues.

A few others here will probably add some more suggestions...

I vote against AVG 8.0 - lot of problems. At least, until they fix it up.

Free antiviruses - Avast, Avira.
Free firewall - Comodo

Spybot Search and Destroy

AdAware

AVG Anti-Spyware

WinPatrol

Stinger ( on demand Trojan scanner )
These can be installed alongside, since they won't interfere with each other, or AV\firewall.
