Default Security Suites

What are some good security suites? why? Also I have Zonealarm and it uses to much processing for me. Any other recommendations? Something that doesn't slow down my computer with lots of processes/stuff

NOD32, even though it's just anti-virus and anti-spyware, doesn't have a firewall or phishing filters which I find unnecessary

I use AVG Free and Windows Defender. I'll do occasional scans with Spybot S&D and Ad-Aware.

avast! FTW. No firewall (I just use Windows) or anything, but I also use Spybot S&D, MBAM, and Ad-Aware. So I'm pretty much set....all for $0.00.

i like kaspersky alot but sometimes nod32 picks up a virus that kaspersky misses. So i just combo it.

Go with Nod32 it barely uses any resources
