Thanks for the mention of TinyWall firewall, guys. I hadn't known about it. Nice little lightweight add-on to the default Windows Firewall.

G-Data is by far my favorite paid anti-virus. But I use avast. It is free. It is awesome.

It's good. I used it for about two years. But I switched to Avast! and stayed. I just like the user interface better and control over how updates are done and notified.
