Security, Antivirus, System Check

I'm a rookie computer user and just bought a new computer. I'm looking for the best software that will protect my computer and keep it running smoothly. It can with Norton anti virus and system works, but everything I've read about them has been negative. Can anyone recommend a basic package that will keep my computer free from virus, hackers, and run it efficiently or clean it up

Thanks joe
