    You can't do much about it. Norton and MacAfee are slow, they're secure but will take up a lot of RAM and make your PC noticably slower. Other than basic windows maintenance there is little you can do. I recommend avast! and Comodo.

    Comodo - the most solid firewall I've ever used if you set it up correctly. If you don't have the knowledge then ZoneAlarm is still vey secure.

    avast! - better free antivirus than AVG, simple to use but requires free registration. Another option is Antivir, which is the best free antivirus out there in terms of detection rate, but you do have to put up with a splash screen.

    If you're willing to pay a bit then ZoneAlarm Pro and Antivir Pro might be best for you, but seeing as you've just bought MacAfee you might not want to spend any more. Free software should be fine, but no software is 100% impenetrable. You should also use Windows Defender and SpywareBlaster (both free) to make your PC even more secure.

    That's what I'm using - when I did a poll on which antivirus people on this website use it came out on top, and it has always been fine for me. :)
