I would strongly recommend NOD32.  Not only does  it seem to be an excellent 
antivirus program but after removing all the Symantec stuff from my system and 
on NOD32, everything is speeded up greatly including boot up. 

I am using the free Sygate as a separate firewall but the news from Symantec 
leads me 
to think that before long I will need something else.   I am currently trying 
out Zone 
Alarm on a spare machine.  In addition to the basic program with firewall 
capability only 
there are paid for packages with antivirus and anti spyware as well.   If you 
really want 
to have a single product that might be a route worth following up.
