Which Anti-Virus?

I don't know what anti-virus to choose..
Norton or Mcafee?

I tried both but the current one is Mcafee and I have to renew the subscription but before I do, I want to know whether I should stick to it or go back to Norton.

Advice anyone?

I like Norton because I understand it more and it has the live update thing when I prefer over the way Mcafee updates!

Definitely Norton, i tried Mcafee and it sucked!

neither, I used e-trust anti-virus for 5 years now, works very well.

McAfee doesn't consume a lot of resources like Norton.

Good thing I'm using a mac, I don't have to worry about updates or any of that. :P

At work we use Norton. On my personal laptop I got McAfee installed. I like McAfee better, the interface is nicer and the full scans are faster.

In effectiveness they are probably the same.

yes mcafee makes me reboot for the new definitions to take effect!

Reema

"McAfee doesn't consume a lot of resources like Norton" is that a good or a bad thing? :/
I'm a mac-illiterate. How come you don't get viruses there? :p
