I have never had good experiences with Zone Alarm. I haven't used that for the past five years, so maybe something changed, but it always used to lag my computer a lot. Especially when playing games.

I have used AVG it is Good but I found it is getting bigger, and the auto things
are not as easy as I remember. I am now trying AVAST

http://www.avast.com/eng/avast_4_home.html

Seems to be working fine. I like the screen saver part, it scans the computer
when the screen saver starts. Check it out you may like it.

BUT!!!!! PLEASE do not use any computer without an Anti Virus program and firewall
running. :D (I use Comodo firewall not the entire suite --
