I have McAfee Internet Security Suite, it does take a little setting up but is brilliant. I don't use the Spamkiller for emails though cos it just assumes all emails are spam. The firewall and anti-virus are excellent.

I would recomend

Sygate personal Firewall
AVG free Edition
Lavasoft Ad-Watch

Also if you use Internet exsplorer i would recomend geting Firefox its much more secure

A little more detail on the ones i listed for you

The reason I like AVG so much is low resorce use and constantly updating.

Sygate personal Firewall is old has been around for long time but its solid also low resorce useage.

Ad-watch i find is good for the things that 99pct of antiviruses dont catch.

And i refuse to use Internet Exsplorer thats just total junk firefox is faster and lot more secure.
I play lot of online games and do lots of downloads and i never have any trouble.Just make sure you update often and scan youre pc at least once a week.
