Anti-Virus: Avast!
Anti-Spyware: Spybot
Firewall: Hardware
Backup: Mozy (By the way, backing up to an external HD only works as long as the HD doesn't fail. I've had two WD MyBooks fail, and it wasn't pretty. In all my years of computing, those are the only hard drives that have EVER failed on me. Online backups are the way to go).
