Ok, jokes aside try these:

- Panda's Firewall
- Kaspersky's Antivirus and Firewall
- Mcafee
- Zone Alarm
- Symantec's Norton Antivirus

Well I tried the McAfee Internet Security Suite long ago and it worked just alright. These days I am using kaspersky antivirus and firewall and its working quite good. I have also tried Norton Internet security but it just kills my system so I dont actually use it, but some of my friends like it. For anti virus norton corporate is good and does not take that many resources.

he didnt specifiy what he needed it for and he didnt get into anything out of side asking for a good firewall.... all those toy routers have horrible firewalls, so to me a good firewall is a statefull packet inspector. so to me i gave him the proper answer, a good firewall.

Sure, Cisco pix and other types of hardware firewalls are the best. But only if the user knows what the hell they are doing. Most users don't have the knowledge or patience for this kind of thing. They want something affordable and easy to use.
