Neither. AVG. It's free, and it works splendidly. It doesn't consume your memory like both McAfee and Norton both do, either.

Norton by far the most popular. I stick by that product. Been using it since the first time I used the computer. The suite is really good. You get all these bundled software all in one including internet security (firewall, internet intrusion alert, web ad blocker, etc) and antivirus program.
