    I would definately use Norton. Because of it's powerfull security and easy to use services. I have used most of all the listed antiviruses and tested them with my pc. The worst ever for me is Kaspersky which is so much deficult to use and it will hand and crash your pc sometimes. The rest are fine but for me, Norton is the Best ;)

    I used to like Kaspersky a lot, and even I refer it to others.
    But once it happened that It did not stop a trojan, so I've lost my trust on it (at least for me)
    I just like to play it safe.

    If I'm suspicious about some file, I prefer this

    Hi naimish!
    I think you are wrong! Have you ever used norton in a P4 pc which has not a good configuration!
    If not then check it that after installing norton are u able to do some work in that pc!
    I think NORTON is most bad, I can tell u some viruses which are not detected by norton "lax.exe","avg,vbs" etc.
    And kaspersky is so difficult to use and for me it has never crashed a pc even it is a P3!
    ;-)

    First of all I really hate this sentences I think you are wrong!

    See, this all is depends on someone personal choice and you can't force them. You like Kaspersky, which is as said....confusing. I have used Norton in P4 too, and all I can say is, it's working fine till now. and Yes, I am still able to do my work, even I can run VS.NET in my system.

    The disadvantage is only that it's decreases the speed of start-up, and if it have slow down your PC then change the configuration.

    The viruses not detected by norton like "lax.exe","avg,vbs" etc. then I can say No One Is Perfect. May you could have report this to Norton.

    In Kaspersky, I found much difficulties, if I tell you, after installing it, it got crash my pc, I had to format my PC, that's why I don't like Kaspersky.

    Depends on person to person.

    I am using nod32 right now. Well, if all are free I would definitely use Norton AntiVirus.

    I used Norton. It's good but will use a certain part of system resource. I just installed a fire wall and don't use antivirus any more.
