That really depends on what your machine can handle, but my preference would be for Avast! antivirus, and a good firewall. If you have Windows Vista or Windows 7, you already have a reasonably good firewall. If you have Windows XP, I'd look for a better firewall, such as Comodo.

As for Avast!, there's nothing wrong with their free product. If you decide to go with their paid Internet Security product though, you could skip Comodo altogether. Comodo, on the other hand, is free. It really depends on whether or not you're willing to spend some money to get both functions under one program or not.
