    You don’t need to buy anything.

    I personally use these on my computers (Windows 7 Ult x64, 7 RC x86, and 7 RC x64):

    avast! – anti-virus (Avira is good as well)
    MalwareBytes – anti-malware (on-demand only)
    Spybot S&D – anti-spyware (on-demand only)
    SuperAntiSpyware – anti-spyware (on demand only)

    ESET Smart Security and Norton Internet Security have the best detection rates and abilities while also maintaining a light footprint with minimum system impact.

    Both include both antivirus and firewall.

    Both are pay options, but probably the best products, and you can save a bit with either if you purchase for multiple computers / multiple years. (And they both have trials if you want to figure out how they work.)

    ESET offers you a lot more detailed control if you want it, but once you figure it out and get it set up is excellent. Norton tends to be more accessible for the average consumer, but at least historically has been more difficult to remove and reinstall, or more likely to periodically have a “hiccup” that can be a pain to resolve, etc.

    You can’t really go wrong with either. I use ESET personally but tend to rec Norton for friends / relatives who aren’t super comfortable with their computer.
