It's about time for me to either renew my Norton subscription, or find something better . I remember reading a thread on here about antivirus protection, and how most were saying that Norton sucks.

What is everyone else using for the antivirus software?

I use Microsoft's Security Essentials ( and have had great luck with it since my kids love to be on Facebook, Myspace, youtube, and just about every flash game site imaginable. The AV has caught every issue without problems.

And, it's free.

I second MSE, or take a look at the new Trend Micro stuff if you want to pay.
