Please recommend a good anti-virus and firewall program

Hi,

I require very good anti-virus and firewall programs. They can be seperate
and not bundled.

My system is a P4 Duo 6600, Corsair 2GB DDr2, Asus p5b deluxe motherboard,
xft geforece 7800gtx and an ADSL2 Siemens connection. And XP Pro Sp2.

I am quite hands on and prefer to update my programs manually.

I used to have ZoneAlarm Pro, and AVG. Then I switched over to AVAST.
Currently I'm using McAfee Security Centre 6.

But I suspect that McAfee is doing random scans on my harddrive. McAfee also
has a lot of stuff loaded into the RAM- included scheduled activities which
I can't seem to disable.

Any recommendations?

Cheers!

Thank You <VBG>

BTW OP's Q is a little like asking what is the best car?  Answer depends
on the desired uses.
