Earthlink Subscribers can download Norton 360
Time Warner, Optimum & Roadrunner Subscribers can download CA's Internet Security Suite Plus

The point is that you should see if your current ISP offers a viable A/V & Firewall from a reputable company as well as investigate other free and paid-for options.
No offense or responsibility to the poster but I just tried the free CA's Internet Security Suit Plus via Optimum on my Win7 Ult 64 machine and it sucked big time. Made me uninstall MalwareBytes and reboot or would not allow a install, then would only do a internet install and at the end reported it failed a proper install but still installed to enough of a degree to run. Placed ad's and popups everywhere and a whole bunch of other bad stuff. Then would not uninstall even though it was in the control panel.

Had to do a restore point to get it off.

I highly don't recommend it.
