Antivirus & Firewall suite, recommendations?

I'm looking for an antivirus and firewall suite for Windows 7 64-bit. The only two I like the "look" of are Zonelabs Security Suite and ESET Smart Security. Has anyone used either of these in a 64-bit environment, do they work well? Thanks.

I am using Eset Smart Security and have never had a problem with it. Unobtrusive, lightweight on sys resources, excellent integration and great detection and firewall. I've been using it for over three years and have never thought of using anything else.....

....though if I hadn't just paid for a two year license I may have looked at Microsoft's free Security Essentials that has just come out

A lot of MVPs recommend Eset. I use it and it's not to be seen or heard (unless.....)

What's MSE? Is that the built-in firewall?

Best alternative to Bitdefender Firewall (of 2012 Security Suite)
Bitdefender has dumbed down BDIS 2013, compared to 2012 - especially in the Firewall department. its 'Paranoid Mode' now apparently decides which software is safe or not, as opposed to when it let the advanced users decide what to allow...or not. Is there a free alternative (just the Firewall)? I...
