Avast is what I run on my systems. So far haven't had any problems. For the truly paranoid I also recommend Online Armor. http://www.online-ar...n-software.html This is a free firewall which is much improved over Windows but seems to be much smarter than Zone Alarm or Comodo so is less trouble. You can also add the No Script add-on to Firefox. This will keep strange websites you visit from running scripts of any kind (you have to allow a website you trust to run scripts so it is more work for you but it will remember which sites you trust so you only have to do it the first time you visit a site.)
If you want to pay for an anti-virus then look into Kaspersky or Bitdefender. Both very highly rated in most tests. Stay away from McAfee which seems a waste of money. Norton/Symantec may be fairly highly rated but you pay a big performance penalty as it is a resource hog.
