Default Neither. But if you have to choose, go with norton

With mcaffee, you might as well not even bother. i have it, and it does very little good. our family computer is loaded with viruses. i havn't used norton yet, but i am more than certain that it is better.
If you can put out a few extra dollars, build a small firewall and put smooth wall on it. you won't have any problems again (unless you don't know how to run smooth wall...then your screwed). My linux machine doesn't ever have problems, nor do the computers networked with it that run windows.

Lol; Linux machines are just like Windows Machines - somebody who knows nothing is just as likely if not more likely to get a Virus on Linux than on Windows. Somebody who treats either right and knows how to control either will never get a major Virus.
