I'd take Kapersky, good AV, but as people said, MSE is also very good, less resource heavy same protection.
agreed, just running norton feels like u have a virus

Guys, he's getting one for FREE. My suggestion - Get Norton. Try it out. If you don't like it, give it to a friend.

I've been using Norton Internet Security for many years with no problems whatsoever. I have even used it to successfully clean friend's computers that have been infected by sites they shouldn't have been visiting. It is true that the latest releases are far more resource friendly now. I never notice it running in the background. It is also very easy to configure if it is doing something you don't want it to do. IMHO, it's my pick.

Stewart, If you happen not to like the one you end up picking, I would recommend using Microsoft Security Essentials. A+

Norton isn't resource-chomping anymore, it's very light now. Norton and Kaspersky are probably the two best paid suites available right now. Last time I looked, Norton had slightly higher detection rates on av-comparatives, but they are pretty similar.

Really though, I like the free stuff better Avira has the best detection rate, but does have more false positives than other free options, so if you know what you're doing, get Avira. If not, get Avast or Microsoft Security Essentials. Don't touch AVG...just don't do it lol, the detection rates are below the other free versions and it doesn't detect rootkits (this is only an issue for 32 bit operating systems, but still...)

If you are an advanced user, you might also try Comodo Internet Security or Comodo Firewall with a free antivirus. It is excellent and makes it virtually impossible to get infected, but it does require significant user interaction and, if you click the wrong button once on an alert, the protection goes away.

I would also recommend doing periodic scans with Malwarebytes Antimalware and SuperAntiSpyware, which are on-demand and catch malware that real-time antiviruses can miss.

EDIT 2: Can MSE be used with one of the above. Double protection?
Norton's latest is amazing, and is provided free by many ISPs. Norton is currently among the best rated anti-viruses out there. Ignore the idiots giving their input based on experience from an outdated 3 year old version. It is now very light on resources and picks up and blocks every virus I've tested with (I code some)

http://www.pcantivirusreviews.com/
http://www.all-internet-security.com..._software.html
http://techtoggle.com/2009/01/top-10-antivirus-2009/

Pretty consistent across many review sites with the good ratings.

Haven't worked with Kaspersky recently.

MSE is great as well, plus it is easy to download, and is always free.

I used Norton back in the day, so I do not know if it's gotten less resource-y.

But in my own experience Kaspersky is very good and doesn't take up too much resources. I am a heavy user if you know what I mean. Torrents, p2p, gaming, etc. etc., and have never ever had a virus problem with kaspersky. Been using it for about 4 years now. In fact, I haven't had to do a reinstall throughout the life of this computer XD.

Personally I would go with Kaspersky because for me it has worked over and over again perfectly and has never caused me a problem. I am intrigued about MSE, haven't used it before, but like I said, I don't think I will switch because this has worked so well for me. Why fix it if its not broke.

Can anyone attest to MSEs performance compared to Kaspersky?
