Hello I have malware bytes premium lifetime and avg free running on my system. I just realised that avg free doesn't have a firewall. I'm here asking if that's true. If it doesn't come with a firewall than what's the point other than to clog up my cpu? Does anyone recommend a good antivirus firewall (other than windows firewall, sorry it's kinda bad).

MWB is anti-malware, which is slightly different from antivirus, so AVG isn't just clogging the CPU. Personally, I use Avast, as it's not so heavy on the processor from my experience, and the free suite seems more involved in threat detection. But it doesn't have a free firewall. I run the Windows Firewall and haven't had any issues.

I don't even run a firewall.... As Saberus said they scan for different things, so it's fine to run them both. (I wouldn't scan at the same time, that's a lot of disk activity.) I find firewalls annoying as they usually just block what you are trying to do.
