Default Best low resource Anti Virus and Firewall


I'm an advanced user and I just started fresh with a reload of XP and I need to find a new Firewall and Antivirus. I mean I have the latest Zone alarm and stuff backed up in another HD but am tired of How much resources it uses I like my PCs 2GBs of Ram to be as free'd up as possible.

I used to use new Zone Alarm the newest version and Azureus but After my last reload I was thinking to my self that I wanted something different this time something that used less power to preform the same task. I just downloaded Utorrent and its awsome high speed same tools as Azureus and uses 6MB while downloading were as Azureus used 60MB.

ZoneAlarm is also a big system hog but has served me well and I just want something that works just as good but uses less resources, don't care if its free or costs money.

Thanks for all the good info. This is my first post at this fourm.

nod 32 as A/V
vcom's systemsuite 6 as firewall (I'd turn off the a/v part)

The Ultimate Hard Drive Utility PowerMax 4.23. (It now has the ability to clean a Boot Sector virus on the quick erase option.)
The best browser Netscape 8
