NAV is fine but the problem is that it takes up a lot of system resources. so unless your system is really fast, you would have to think about it. that is the flip side. on the other hand, i have seen that once you installed NAV there is very very little chance of your system being infected by a virus. it truly keeps your system clean.

AVG Free Edition is fine and it doesnt clog system resources. the other alternative would be McAffee, but personally i would ask u to take a choice between NAV and AVG

I use zonealarm firewall plus antivirus. it has been great, with no problems since installing. the firewall is free, and the antivirus costs $25 per year. they update virus definitions almost daily, so they seem pretty on top of whats out there.
that in combination with microsoft anti-spyware (also free, and great program) seems a good choice to me.
the fact that most of the malware specialists in the malware forums recommend AVG speaks pretty highly of it, so it should be a good way to go as well.
