Zone Alarm Firewall and Anti Virus free (the AV is the kaspersky engine) best free security I have found yet, its light and fast, the two way Firewall is spot on ... love it !

Norton does not work very well for me where it takes too much of my memory and affects the performance of the computer. I've been using AVG or ESET Nod32, these are my choices specially when gaming.
