For AV and firewall, I use Symantec AntiVirus (free from my school) and Zone Alarm. Both are doing a great job so far.

The MS Firewall enabled (What the heck you know)
An alternative browser/e-mail client like Firebird and Thunderbird
Also, be vigiliant. You want to be pro-active with your system and schedule or run scans at least a couple of times a month at minimum.
