Norton Internet Security (NIS) is an excellent AV program. I am using it since years. It uses few resources and is very effective fighting malware.

I am not aware of any specific software for on-lins shopping. You do your on-line shopping thru the appropriate webpages - e.g. Amazon, Newegg, etc.

I would strongly advise against on-line banking. That is too dangerous. If you really have to do it, use a Linux system (virtual or from a stick). That gives you better protection.

I reccomend you use Norton or Avast and Malwarebytes. Remember to disable auto quarantine because false positives can be found and removed. Run scans on each on DIFFERENT day for each every week. If they run at the same time, they can detect each other and mess everything up.

Norton Internet Security is way worth it if you want to use some money. AVG used to be one of the best AVs but they seem to be getting worse. If you don't want to pay, AVAST is one of the best free AVs that you can use that have real time protection shields (not firewalls, in my opinion the default Windows Firewall is good enough.)

Running Linux in virtual is much better. A lot easier to operate and to install - and it does the same thing. Here is a video demo how to run Linux in virtual on a Windows 7 host.
