Dont worry we dont like Norton, for an AV i usually reccomend Avast easy to use, effective and it looks pretty good too (has skins so you can pretend your in star trek if you like).

For maintaining performance TuneUp is my favourite application its a good way to have all your maintenance operations in one application(its not an AV just a performance tool clears up the registry and temp folders, optimises settings for your situation stuff like that)
