I would use the free Microsoft Security Essentials, Malwarebytes in conjuction with a Firewall. That is possibly the best combination for Windows 7.

well guess you don't need the parental control or maybe you do
turn on the anti banner it will give you relatively ad free browsing, in settings-threats and exclusions do tick other and monitor all ports in network setting these are all off/unticked by default
