    Neither. Most infected machines I clean out are using Norton. Viruses disable that one first of all.

    Get a free one, like Avast, AVG, or Avira. They are better and don't slow down your machine. The Windows firewall is as good as any.

    Once upon a time, I used to use Norton.... Something odd happened and it wouldn't let me browse. Got it uninstalled immediately. Thankfully it was a trial version (but trial was not over).

    Now sticking to MSE.

    If you want to buy something, consider ESET . It is on that Microsoft page also. According to a tester on this forum, ESET is one of two resilient antivirus that manage to stay alive when viruses attack them. ( forgot what the other product was )

    IMHO .. No antivirus will catch all, Prevent a HDD failure .. Or stop Windows from getting corrupted for no good reason.
    If you're want to spend some money .. Get a good program to backup your Operating System ..
    Like Acronis .. Then use freeware Antivirus

    mse is small, low resources, and as good as any other app at catching malware.

    Course, avoiding malware is 95% user common sense, as well.
