    AVG 7.5 (Free edition) or get Mcafee suite. Don't use nortons unless you are really familiar with it and need some of it's utility programs. I find that Norton's attempts to take total control over your OS (IMO).

    Excuse Me?
    Didn't Think So!

    problem i have with norton is that it takes up too much resources
    right now i am using nod32 and my laptop takes about 2 mins to boot up
    with norton it takes me 5 minutes to boot up

    so id recommend avg over norton

    Yes Norton is just a huge bloated app that takes over your whole machine and life !

    AVG is good and works well and is unobtrsive

    Look here:

    I would also suggest either Kaspersky or NOD32, and neither of the ones you're asking about. But if you had to choose from the ones you ask I would say go for AVG as it uses less memory and doesnt really take over your PC as much.

    If you're being forced to use anti-virus, I recommend NOD32
