    AV and FW help

    Hi all,
    I have begun the painstaking process of upgrading the software side of my sim from WinXP/FS9 to Win7/FSX 64bit.

    I am looking for recommendations on Antivirus/Firewall programs. All I'll be doing on the system is Flying online, and FSX related connections and Win7/Microsoft required updates/connections.

    I have full versions of McAfee VirusScan Plus, and Symantec End Point Protection 12.1 but would prefer to not have the system overhead.

    I would also prefer the package to free if possible.

    Any ideas would be appreciated!

    Warren
