Free Antivirus programs: (choose and install only one)Choosing an anti-virus is a matter of personal preference, your technical ability and experience, features offered, the amount of resources utilized, how it may affect system performance and what will work best for your system. A particular anti-virus that works well for one person may not work as well for another. You may need to experiment and find the one most suitable for your use. There is no universal "one size fits all" solution that works for everyone. Another factor to consider is whether you want to use a paid for product or free alternative. My personal choice is NOD32 Anti-Virus if choosing a paid for program or avast! Free Antivirus if choosing a free one.

If you want relative safety NIS 2011 is your best bet. It wont be light on resourses so too speak as it includes hipps & sandboxing.
Or you can find out which a/v will be the lightest on your resourses and then add sandboxie free.
