HO, HO! Dude, do exactly what you feel like. Try them out one by one. Learn by experience, there is no standard text that tells you what the best AV is.

BUT, make sure you have your data backed up, so in case you need to format after a bad infection, you dont loose anything critical.

Does Comodo suit you? If you want to use it effectively, it will pop for everything and you have to decide for yourself to allow or deny something.

Seeing as this thread is about anti-virus: The anti-virus component of Comodo is known to be awful.

Comodo is the highest rated firewall. Do note, it is not an anti-virus or anti-malware.

For an anti-virus, I suggest Avast or MSE.
Comodo also has a free Antivirus-program, when you install, you can select only the firewall or both firewall and antivirus-program.
