Take a look here;
What's the Best Anti-virus?

Really comes to Avast, Avira and Microsoft Security Essentials (Free)
Kaspersky Or Norton (Paid)

Right now i am currently using Avira Free 10 which has the highest detection rate of the three, i can only say download and tell them yourself to find which one you like.

Edit: as for the firewall you could use the windows firewall itself and or Windows 7 Firewall control or Comodo firewall which i use, Current has a Sandbox in Version 4 easy setup, easy to configure.. one of the best if not the best firewall around. theres also a Defense+ mode that acts like the windows UAC but better

If you want a security suite then I recommend Norton.

Comodo Defence+ and UAC dosen't act in similar ways....

Defence+ is HIPS, and UAC is in no way HIPS...

UAC acts more like in a way of User privilege virtulisation. (and no it's not virtualization in terms of returnill or shadow defender... I used this term in different way)
