I've been using Panda for some years now, and in about a month my Panda Internet Security license is going to expire, and I am not going to renew it.
I do not know much about AVs and firewalls and the like, but it seems to me that PandaIS has both of these. I think the Av in itself blocks Viruses and Malware and the firewall blocks intrusion attempts and the like.
My questions are: Does a free AV have all of this as well? Do I have to use a free AV combined with the windows firewall? If so, how is the windows firewall compared to AV firewalls (such as Panda's)? If not, are there any free firewall software (much like the free AV software)?
