Well you could get McAffee and Norton. Zonealarm professional edition is really good too.
Great Place

Best firewall? A cheap Linux box running a dedicated firewall distro. (Hardware is always better than software.) For AntiVirus, I'm very fond of AVG, but if you must have the absolute (slowest) best, then go with Norton Enterprise.

I would recommend listening to some online audio broadcasts by Steve Gibson at www.grc.com (gibson research corporation). Click the Shields Up from the main pages and then follow the links to his "Security Now" audio broadcasts. They are MP3's about 40 mins long each but he does an amazing job of instructing on these types of topics. I have learned a TON from his programs. He talked in one about a very common trick that was used by MALWARE to spoof firewalls and the only one that NEVER had this deficiency (of the FREEWARE firewall class) was ZoneAlarm. He did mention that TinyFirewall and one other were his personal favorites, though they are no longer supported.

Avast and AVG are the best free antivirus programs.
NOD32 is the best non-free antivirus program.
But nontheless, do not go with Norton Antivirus no matter what! I've used it and was fed up with it using a huge amount of system resources and causing system problems.
