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)
