    I started off with Panda Free Antivirus and Privatefirewall 7.0, but both were too much for me to handle, so I replaced them with Avira Free 12.0.0.872 (with BpGKiller), and Agnitum Outpost Firewall 6.51. I'm happy with the Avira (got good reviews nearly everywhere), but the Agnitum got panned nearly everywhere...so I'm looking to replace it. I also have a hardware firewall through a Mikrotik router. So what antivirus, and software/hardware firewalls are people here using today? Anything I should try?

    I have been using 360 Total Security Essentials from qihoo, (free), this is my real time scanner, on demand I use malwarebytes free. Windows built in firewall.

    so far so good, :)

    I'll look into 360. Thanks for the tip.
