Hi,

What windows version are you using.

Depends on what you do with your computer.

For gaming an antivirus is all you need since you are the best antivirus around.
If you go on obscure website, download obscure programs then I would install a nice antivirus and comodo/zone alarm firewall

ok, can you pay for an antivirus/internet security?

If so then look at Webroot, been using it for years and it is the best I've ever seen. It picks all viruses up, and barely uses any memory or cpu load.

You might find Microsoft Security Essentials sufficient, and, ...it is free! :)
