    avg 7.5 (antivirus)
    zone alarm OR kaspersky (firewalls, your choice)
    spybot S&D, adaware 2008, super-anti-spyware, etc. (spyware/adware)

    the above are all free. i personally use macaffee total protection does literally everything you could ever want security wise, but you have to buy it. whatever you do, do not get norton under any circumstances.

    I use Avast Anti-virus Home Edition (Free).
    I like it more than AVG Anti-virus, but that's a matter of taste as both are good and get the job done.

    You can find them on Download.com

    For me I don't really use Security software due to low HDD I have but I think that all of you ask before are pretty good. But only a question is AVG is very good anti-virus???

    Thanks in advance for the help
