I have a sony vaio computer, 2.00 GHz Processor and 512 MB of RAM. I was wondering if I should use Avast or Comodo (free version). But then I also saw that someone had used: Avast + Malwarebytes + ZoneAlarm/Comodo Firewall. I was wondering if that was even necessary and if my computer could even handle it. Also what is the difference between Avast and Comodo anyway, I always thought that they were the same. And I have heard about something called a sandbox. Does one company make sandbox or do other companies like Avast or Comodo offer their own version? If so what is the best one and how do I use it. Please Help, I really need some better antivirus security and don't want a virus or any spyware.

My computer is a 2002 Sony Vaio with a 2.00 GHz AMD Anthlon XP processor. I am running Windows XP Home edition.
