I used Norton for 2 years. The second year using Norton Internet Security 2005. I can't think of a product so completely useless and at the same time, such a resource hog. My experience, get Norton out of your computer now. The same goes for McAfee. My sister uses it, and while she is not exactly security conscience, I've tested it, and I don't think it lives up to the hype.
You are going to read and get lots of responses from people who love AVG. I'm not one of them. I got 2 trojans using it, and before everyone flames me for dissing AVG, yes, I had a lot of other protection practices in use at the same time. But if you want a free AV, that probably 99% of the admins will recommend, give it a shot. It's free. So if you don't like it, you aren't out $50.00.....
I did an extensive amount of research on AV's because I needed one badly, one that actually worked, and one that I would not uninstall after using it for 2 months....I almost went for Panda too. But I read a lot of user reviews of the software. It didn't meet customer's expectations, it was a resource hog, and their was little or no product support. I passed.
I finally settled on BitDefender 9 Standard. I couldn't be happier. It is very powerfull, uses little system resources to run in the background, and it is relatively cheap at $24.00. It has been certified by VB %, ICSA Labs, Checkmark, and TUV......That's my 2 cents. You will have to ultimitly make the choice, but here are 2 links for reviews, and a link to BitDefender, which by the way also has a free on-line scanner......
