What's the difference? I want it to be simple and easy to use, while effective at catching and deleting viruses.

Those are good Alternatives, But I must warn those that want a trial version of Norton....

I have heard thru the grapevine that after the trial period is up, & you un-install it, it totally screws up your comp.
