I don't think you have tried the latest versions of these products. Unlike AVG 7, AVG 8 is a known resource hog, and the installer is 60 MB, not really that small. The Norton 2009 products are much lighter on resources, in fact the AV is currently one of the lightest according to various reviews, or if you look at AV-Comparatives performance test. And Norton is one of the most user-friendly AV, how does it intrude too much in the use of the computer?
Grisoft is offering a free A/V - A/S at http://free.avg.com This is an excellent program as it is very small, and does not intrude too much in the use of the computer such as Norton or some others will, also not a resource hog. Plus it is FREE.

Jamie, I would use Malwarebytes and SuperAntiSpyware as on demand scanners with whatever antivirus/firewall combo you use.

AntiVir is an excellent free antivirus, with very high detection rates (better than most paid antiviruses) and is also very light on resources.
Is Norton 2009 a free ware if not which free anti-virus is best? i was using avast 4.8 but was having problems with so i removed it and don't know which one to install try bitdefender,avg or is avast better? also is it important to have a firewall?
I have these programs on my computer right now
RootRepeal- not really sure if i need this

There's really nothing wrong with Windows Firewall, but if you really want outbound protection I've heard good things about Outpost Firewall free (according to this review).
what firewall would you recommend and should i turn my windows firewall off after installing a new one? Is antivir better than avast as in lfaster less sluggish i guess? thank you
