The problem here is that everybody gives his own personal choice and at the end we don't know really what is the best choice....very unfortunate.

I myself is using AVG free and PC tools firewall plus which is also free.
Do you think I need something more??

Just because AVG is free. If there is any other free antivirus better than AVG in terms of reviews, better protection and less cpu usage. I will give a try.

Avast is way better than AVG in terms of detection, less false positives and low on resources. Besides, many Gurus here prefer Microsoft Security Essentials.
