    Like the above answerer, I use and recommend Avast Free Antivirus.

    > Avast Free v6: http://www.avast.com/free-antivirus-download

    The best firewall you can get is the free Comodo Firewall, but it's a little difficult for less experienced users.

    If you are confident about your skill level, I recommend the Comodo Firewall, but if you're not real confident, then the Windows Firewall is more than adequate.

    And in addition to Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (MBAM) as suggested above, I also recommend the free version of Superantispyware (SAS).

    Since MBAM and SAS are both *on-demand* scanners (no *real-time* protection), you can have them both installed with no conflicts, and they only use system resources when you are running them.

    > Superantispyware: http://www.superantispyware.com

    Edit:

    Spybot Search and Destroy v2 as suggested above, is still in beta.

    That means not ready for public release.

    - Personally I don't think we should suggest betas here... Just My Humble Opinion ;-)

    Antivirus are almost obsolete. You will definitely need a spyware cleaner. Malware Bytes (Free for Scanning only) and Spybot Search & Destroy (Version 2) would be the best ones you can get for free.

    If you need a free antivirus then Antivir Personal (or Avira) is the best option since it is the first antivirus to compete against paid versions of other major brands like Mcaffee and Norton and reach the Top 10 spot besides AVG which is not advisable as it takes a lot of resources and built for high end systems with too many unwanted utilities. Avast is another good antivirus but the scanner is not good in detecting and effective as Avira

    You can check the ratings and download these softwares from the 2 links below. The first link has all the best softwares available for free and the second one will give you extensive explanations

    I use Avast, and MBAM, they are free, and MBAM is THE best malware program out. Here is a comparison for the major AV's, Avast is the only 3 star rated that is free:

    Here is MBAM:

    For the best security, I suggest installing the WOT add-on into your browser, and only go to sites with a green rating.
