I don't pay for antivirus as it is totally un-necessary.

Get Microsoft Security Essentials, it is all you will ever need.

I would take the following:
Paid: Avast Pro Antivirus 5
Free: COMODO Internet Security

Hope it helps. (:

Sandboxie (free) + MSE + Comodo Firewall ONLY .... as good as my Avast (free) setup instead of MSE

Pro Tip:
Free Sandboxie won't let you specify and set rules to automatically run a program sandboxed, but there is a workaround for that ....

Get Sandboxie FREE to force and run any program in sandbox automatically by Modifying the Shortcuts.

e.g.
Target: "C:\\Program Files\\Sandboxie\\Start.exe" /boxefaultBox "X:\\My Portables\\Palemoon\\Palemoon-Portable.exe"

Start in: "C:\\Program Files\\Sandboxie"
