I found that Norton made it easy to find the viruses, but I had to go in and delete them.

The new version of PC-Cillin got a bad review, so I'd say go with Kaspersky or Panda. PC-Cillin 2006 also is quite the resource hog, so there's even less of an advantage over Norton.

Panda is easy to use, but not as thorough.

exactly. Norton could never delete a virus with just pressing the clean button. The delete button didn't work either. The quarantine button worked sometimes. But every time u had to delete it manually.

I like it very much, the only bad thing is that the free version doesn't have auto-update.
