I prefer Kaspersky.  They have been the sleeper of antivirus protection over the last few years and the features you get with their antivirus is really good value.  Best Buy sells a 1 year license for 1-pc for $39.99.

Re: virus protectors

Virus protection has been a debate on many boards for many years. Kaspersky would also be my recommendation as well, when factoring in such factors as memory and resources used, features, and reliability.

Re: virus protectors

I'm also chiming in.
Kaspersky only has a 70MB footprint on my system, and doesn't slow it down at all.

I'm NOT an employee of Best Buy, or Geek Squad, though I did work as an Agent for a year 5 years ago. None of my posts are to be taken as the official stance that Best Buy will take on your situation. My advice is just that, advice.
Unfortunately, that's the bad luck of any electronic, there's going to be bad Apples... wait that's a horrible pun.

Re: virus protectors

I have tried Kaspersky, and while I agree it has a small footprint, it is not as small as Norton.  What concerned me about Kaspersky was the number of false positives....I had several in the approximately 3 months I used it.  I find that as annoying as a product that misses known vectors (which Kaspersky didn't, but....). Personally I still find Norton the best product available right now.
