You should take Sophos off the list for Mac users. It runs with elevated privileges, which makes it a potential target for exploits.

OS X.6+ have built in AV, but, if you feel you need something, go with ClamXav; it can detect Mac and Windows malware.

I find that Teh-Ziod is NOT attractive for the reasons
she/he does not correct format sentences, therefore for intelligent matured members of society that may interact with her/him, may find her/him UNattractive for the reason that she/he does not comprehend with their level to successfully have a conversation therefore it will be socially an awkward interaction which may be wanted to be avoided

second i do not find it physically possible for a PERSON to be a ice cream truck.

I originally made this for a group I'm in for configuring Firefox, but feel that this may be useful here as well.
First off, useful add-ons:

Easy level add-ons:
Adblock Plus. (Suggestion: from there download the filter subscriptions in Duardo's thread.)
Https-everywhere.
BetterPrivacy. (How you should you set it up.)
RefControl. (Set it to block the referer.)
Web of Trust.

Intermediate level add-ons:
Cookie Monster. (How you should set it up.) Note: you'll have to allow session cookies for sites that require a login such as here.

Masochistic level add-ons: They provide the best security but may break the site and may difficult to use if you don't know what you're doing. Not recommended for beginners.
NoScript. Blocks the javascript on pages unless you allow it.
RequestPolicy. Blocks cross-site requests. Meaning that images from something like imgur being posted here won't show up unless you allow it. Will break the coup script till all requests from whitelisted image hosting sites are allowed.

Now for about:config,

In your address bar type in about:config

From there you'll get a message saying that this might void your warranty, go ahead and click the the "I'll be careful, I promise" button.

First thing you'll want to search for is geo.enabled

You'll want to change it to false.

Next, search for keyword.URL

You'll want to set it to https://duckduckgo.com/?q=

This will change the search utility to DuckDuckGo.

Next, search for browser.search.selectedEngine

Change that to DuckDuckGo

Next search for browser.search.defaultenginename

Change that to DuckDuckGo as well.

Next, search for browser.urlbar.trimURLs

Change that to false

Next search for network.http.sendRefererHeader

Set that to 0

Next search for network.http.sendSecureXSiteReferrer

Set that to false

See this pic for more information.

I use Norton Safeweb to check if websites are safe, I find it pretty useful, though I've been told Norton is rubbish before
