Question about Operating Systems
I definitely believe you are more secure with the current setup. ESET's NOD32 product is recognized as one of the most comprehensive (though not as widely known as some others) in the industry. I am not as familiar with Zone Alarm, but the reviews I have read are all comforting and positive. I have heard of no significant issues with the product.
In regard to AVG, this product (especially because of the free version) has gained wide recognition. However, in wide, varied testing, it has not held up so well. Additionally, the Windows firewall has been reportedly breached in numerous instances, as is probably expected since MS is often a target of individuals in the "malware business" - mostly because they are so widely known.
Depending on the version of NOD32 you are using, you may already have firewall coverage there as well. They have a sound, sturdy, and proactive product, and update their product some 7-8 times more often (minimum, I believe) than their nearest-rated competitor. This is based on review of independent testing that is done regularly and is quite thorough. My suggestion would be to stick with what you have, unless you have had some issue with it. You definitely have a superior product in ESET's NOD32.
