The ones to stay away from are Norton and McAfee...both are quite glitchy and are resource hogs...
Avast and AVG Free are both good AV applications and are free. Both also offer full featured versions that you can purchase. I use the free version of Avast and have never had an infection on this machine.
You'll also want a firewall. Again, there are free firewalls available that are very effective. Sygate and Zonealarm both offer free and full featured versions. I prefer the Sygate firewall as the Zonealarm can sometimes be a bit troublesome.
There are links to the free downloads of both Avast and Sygate in my signature...

Zonelarm will block animated gifs, it will block connections to third-party servers (this can be an issue if a website hosts images on a third party server)
We would need more info to adequately diagnose the issue

That said, those are not animated gifs on the side, but ads...it would no surprise me if zonealarm is also blocking those, since they are hosted on the server in a folder called "Ads"
