    Agreed. If Norton's detection rate was as high as it's system requirements, it would be a great product. Kaspersky is what i use on my computer. It's an all in one solution: Antivirus, scanner, and firewall.

    But most people would do well to go with free antivirus and free firewall as long as they don't click every friggin ad out there (my coworkers *annoyed*).

    Avast! and ZoneAlarm. No cash spent:D.

    Edit: I personally hate bulky security suites.

    Both NOD32 and Kaspersky are of good reputations.

    Norton should be avoided. McAfee 8.5i (Enterprise version) is okay, but not the family version.

    CA's product is in general not that good (Maybe I am wrong).

    Norton is a memory hog, definately go with Kaspersky Antivirus 7.0

    The cursing from the owner of the other laptop in the house would seem to indicate that Norton 2007 may interact in some less than desirable ways ....

    Ive been using NOD32 from almost the first version of it, and its always worked great for me, the small ram foot print lets my system humm along like the av wasn't even there, ive seen nod32 evolve and it just gets better and better, I really dont understand Norton and Mcaffee continuing with their bloat.
