In my opinion, I personally don't like Norton. Try getting the free Avast!.

Maybe it's just norton's superior marketing team, but i've always perceivec McAfee as inferior... although I have no real basis for that.

Are there any differences between avast and Afee? Which one is easier to use...even though this kind of thing is totally straightforward most of the time anyway
