Default XP protection related products

I have some problems regarding spyware, malware and stuff like that on my computer. The browser runs much slower then normal and pictures cannot be adequately displayed. The XP Protection program recommends that I install their software but that will cost $50. Any equivalent software on the net that can be downloaded for free which is equivalent to the XP Protection package?

Should I change my online banking passwords now? Or will they not pick it up? Any links would be excellent.
