What is the best free computer security software?

Hey everyone, I’ve previously used AVG but my pc still got Trojans and viruses. So I went and bought norton 360 and the pc broke. So I’m getting A new laptop for Christmas and was wondering what the best anti virus software is?

    I’ve been through exactly the same, Norton is terrible.
    I currently use AVG but all I seem to get from anti-virus and protection is hassle so I’m not too bothered if I’m honest – but I have heard that StopZilla is brilliant and only costs about £9 or so for a year.

    Protection follows five main security software programs:
    1 a firewall (install only one)
    2 an anti-virus (install only one)
    3 an anti-spyware/malware (install two or three)
    4 a secure browser
    5 a disk cleaner (temporary files,etc.)

    Free firewalls:
    Comodo Internet Security (just the firewall and not the anti-virus)
    PC Tools Firewall Plus
    Online Armor

    Free anti-virus:
    avast! Home Edition 4.8
    Avira AntiVir Personal 9
    AVG 9 (use Threatfire with this program)

    Free anti-spyware/malware:
