I think you should reinstall Windows, use AVG as an anitvirus, and keep up with maintenance after the Windows reinstall. OS reinstalls do wonders to to speed up a bogged down system. AVG uses less system resources and works great for a free antivirus.

Even common sense isn't good enough. You can pick up random viruses everywhere, no matter how hard you try not to get them. Better to be safe than sorry. AVG doesn't take up many resources and effectively does what it's made to do.
