NOD32

You can test drive a fully functional copy for 30 days. I think 2 years is around 60usd. Not a bad deal if ya ask me.

It is not that it isn't good. It is that free ones do just as good of a job. Also Norton tends to take up a lot of resources making your computer run a little slower.

Why buy an Anti-Virus when you can get a comparable product for free.

Norton is crap because it hogs resources.

Avast is good because it's free, light and does the job well done.
