I use Avast free together with Comodo firewall, because they work well with the software I use, with the sites I visit and they feel comfortable with the way I use my computer.

Nice setup! I used to have that, but Comodo seemed to slow down my computer a bit. It is also way too much protection, IMO.

It works for my usage. One of the threats I face is keyloggers, and so far Comodo has done it's job, should one have slipped in.

Also I share the computer with my wife, and she doesn't always know what files or links she accepts from others ;)
