I would like to keep Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware. Currently I can't run its real-time protection module because it keeps shutting of McAfee's real-time scanning and then my computer just has a hissy fit until I shut it off.
Is it better to go with individual components or with a security suite? I kind of like the all-inclusiveness of a suite, but if just using individual components is better, then I'm open to change. If I should switch to individual components, then what components (other than a firewall and anti-virus) do I need?
I've had Norton and Sophos before and hated them both. Just looking around online and on anti-virus comparative sites like av-comparatives.org and av-test.de it seems that ESET, F-Secure, Kaspersky, and Panda consistantly rank high. Are these actually good programs? Is there something better than them?

The first question I need to ask you, is do you want to go with a free antivirus program and free firewall or do you want to pay for your AV? I usually recommend a separate AV and firewall, but if you like, you can go with a security suite fi you find the right program you like.

I've got no problem paying for an AV. If I do decide to go with a separate AV and firewall, should I get the same brand of each?
