    Windows Firewall inbound only + WSA has worked on my wife's laptop for years without a problem. I really liked the safe banking feature when somebody is buying from the internet regularly. It is light also.

    I would personally go with n. 2 (and WSA enterprise to control all installation from WSA central panel) or number 1 but with PCs on a limited user account.
