MSE is a great antivirus software by Microsoft. I am using it, and not even a single infection till date. It detects almost all Autorun based viruses from USB drives too. Give it a try.No, it doesn't have a firewall. I don't think any free antivirus software have a firewall, except Comodo Internet Security. Correct me if i'm wrong.

Tbh, kaspersky (internet security) costs 700 odd bucks now, and Ive found it to be better than avast. No idea about avg though.

I was a fan of MSE but it left my sister's PC all messed up due to virus. She made me go to her house all the way to Borivali to reinstall windows. So I purchased Kaspersky 3 user license for 899. So far so good!

hehe strange. i installed it on an uncle's machine who is well not very technical and it has worked great for him. he does not of course venture on social networking sites so is not tempted to click on potentially malware links :p he was however confused with fake antiviruses. told him to ignore them :D
