Okay, I don't know if I should switch to NOD32 instead...

Norton integrates very tightly with the operating system and uses a lot of system resources. It's difficult to remove when you want to get rid of it and difficult to install if the previous version is not completely uninstalled. The catch? It rarely uninstalls cleanly.
AVG and AVAST! are both adequate AV applications and are not nearly as tightly integrated. They have smaller system footprints than Norton or McAfee and offer good overall protection. Both auto-update and both offer real-time protection.
NOD32 is what I use. Very small system footprint. Updates several times a day and has very strong real-time protection. Of all the AV's out there, NOD32 is about the best. I wouldn't use anything else on my machines. It's basically an install it and forget it AV application.

I've also heard of Kaspersky AV, is it any better?

Edit: Never mind, they're gone now.
