What would be the best protection from viruses/malware/ trojans, etc. Right now I am using Avast, Zone Alarm (for firewall) and Malwarebytes for mawlware protection. I wanted to know the best combination of free ones?

Also what would be the best software to do a clean sweep of the computer to clean out all viruses?

Also I always have problems with missing codecs is there anything I can install which will just give me all the codecs possible (or at least 90 % of the most used ones)?

Thank You

Avira AV + Outpost Firewall pro is the best combination i have ever had untill the license of OPFWP had to end.
now am using Comodo firewall + MSE + SuperAntiSpyware..
the SuperAntiSpyware is turned off and i run a scan once a week.....
afterall it all depends on the user

I like the dual antivirus engine on GDATA Internret Security and the firewall is very good also.It's very light and doesn't affect OS performance.

My set up on Win7 64 bit:

Windows Firewall + MSE v 4.0 + real time Spyware guard = works well and extremely light on resources. Note that I use set up my own firewall rules.

Extras: on-demand MBAM and SuperAntiSpyware.

Thinking of going MBAM pro.
