Kaspersky is wayyyyyyyyy better than Norton. Having Norton anything on your system is like having a huge virus that sucks up all your system rescources. Also, NO!! DO NOT HAVE 2 ANTI-VIRUSES RUNNING AT THE SAME TIME!(so no MSE for "double protetction", this mindset gets people in trouble) This can actually cause your system to have problems. Just having an Anti-virus program that does real time scans will be good enough. Although, you shouldn't have 2 anti-virus programs, you should have multiple spyware programs like malwarebytes and Asquared and spyware search and destroy.(Yes, I realize some Anti-virus programs say they scan for spyware, but they never do a good job at it) Those do not run 24/7 like your Anti-virus does, so running these scans will not cause any problems. Good luck! and stear clear of Norton!

I'd take Kapersky, good AV, but as people said, MSE is also very good, less resource heavy same protection.
When was the last time you have used Norton Antivirus? Since Norton 2009 their product has been very light weight in terms of foot print and resource usage as well as a very good detection rate. It has been rated very high in the AV market since the release of Norton 2009.

I personally wouldn't pay for an Antivirus. I have used Avira for the last 3 years and have not had a problem with viruses. Avira is very light weight, has a great detection rate, and is FREE!!! The only downside to the free avira is that you get a single pop up add every 24hrs. (This can be disabled but i really dont care enough clicking 1 pop up every 24hrs)

AV-Comparative.org is an independent tester for AV's that are on the market. This comparative test between numerous AV's was released March 17 2010. The numbers speak for themselves and Norton ranks pretty high in the charts.

Well since Norton is getting so much crap i thought i might jump in and say i have found it too be very good, it just seems to not bother me at all i never notice when it scans (i think it does it when comps inactive) and it doesn't seem to use much resources.

I have nortons on 1 pc and AVG on another and i would rate norton's above AVG

get MSE like other people said. If you want a paid AV, get NOD32, uses alomost no resources and always gets high test reviews

i had NOD, but when it expired, I found out about MSE, and have been using that since and couldnt be happier
