What's the best and the most lightweight...?

Antivirus around?

How about Firewall?

Thanks!

I'm sure you'll hear many different results here, but I LOVE my Avast. It seems to update multiple times a day most of the time and when its not doin that i don't even realize im running a AV lol.
I used to use ZoneAlarm Firewall but that was in my early Vista days it seemed to work most excellent without probs. I would only get annoying initially with new progs since it makes sure nothing goes by that you don't want to. Not sure if its 7 supported yet.

After having used AVG, Avast, Avira, and a few others I vote for ESET's NOD32, the lightest, quickest and most effective I have used to date hands down.

But do any of these give you that extra sense of security by sayin, hey you're ok buddy don't mind me im just doin a little update for ya. k, bye! lol That's my made up scenario for what i see when my Avast comes up and says, "Virus Database has been updated."

Just reading through their website now. I like the fact that it's just one option for the program and not bundled into a security suite or other crap like other companies.

That's their problem. Due to lack of proper marketing and advertisement, many ppl dont even know about Vipre. But try it to believe it.
