Default network weak spot

I am running three pc's on my wireless home network all with top end firewall and virus software, I am adding a fourth to the network but it will only run avg free and windows firewall (or some other freeware) will this create a weak spot in the network, I do alot of internet banking etc. on one of the other pc's, thanks Aussie13

Is there a question?
If you are behind a router. That is a hardware firewall. You can get a much better free antivirus. Either replace AVG with Aviria or Avast.

You don't want to run Windows Firewall if you already have a firewall running at the head of the network.

The weakest spot in the network will invariably be between the chair and the keyboard.
