Well ... I'm a big fan of Norton myself ... never had any problems with it myself.

If I was you, I'd keep Norton, and occasionally use Online AV Scanners to pick up anything it misses.

Personally I like McAfee; but there is almost no difference between the too -and it will cost you to get McAfee. So it makes sense to just stay with Norton.

Try Grisoft's AVG. It's free.
