Question Norton antivirus or Mcaffe antivirus which is better?

I was wondering since I have Norton antivirus on my computer, if it is better or worse than Mcaffe antivirus. My computer hasn't had any problems yet but if I need the extra protection I would be willing to try something else. I also use Webroot Anti Spyware, So I figure im safe.

yea i've gottin viruses which is inievitable on a 13k computer network.. but with NAV when a new unreleased virus is on an outbreak they are very quick at getting a def. update to fix the outbreak... i highly recommend NAV for corp networks.. even for single home use its awesome.. works extremely good.... i used to use HAURI Vi-Robot which was really good at the time becuase it uses zero system resoures when it scans which is a major plus but management isn't all that great.. but still a good product.
