Norton sucks as well...crap product - poopy bloatware. Most A/V products are a complete pile of dogshit. I use a Fortigate firewall with Fortiguard services that block viruses/ and do web/e-mail filtering at the firewall level. Not a cheap solution, but much more effective than local AV software. I hate what AV software does to an OS...really butchers performance badly. Then, I also use a MAC...and never really worry about viruses much --

I run VM4 with Windows Ultimate 64 bit in it...only for the few apps that need Windows and have no MAC equivalent.
