(as in both of them run together > Immunet is cloud based > Higher double database AV)
and Comodo Firewall as the front line gives the best free 3 edged protection for windows.
Clamav engine in Immunet needs to be switched off for responsive cloud based use.

A good linux distro with firestarter (firewall) enabled is a much safer more secure way of surfing the net and no AV required.

Check to see if you can upgrade your Norton software for FREE!
SAN JOSE (CN) - Security software giant Symantec uses "scareware" to trick customers into buying its anti-virus programs, a class action claims in Federal Court.
Lead plaintiff James Gross claims: "Through a common deceptive scheme, Symantec uniformly defrauds consumers into purchasing the three products at issue in this lawsuit - PC Tools Registry Mechanic, PC Tools Performance Toolkit, and Norton Utilities (hereafter collectively referred to as the 'Scareware').
"First, Symantec represents to the consumer that the Scareware is capable of identifying and fixing a wide range of PC errors, privacy threats, and other computer problems. Next, to demonstrate the Scareware's value to the consumer, Symantec allows the user to download the software and perform a 'free diagnostic' scan, which purportedly detects whether any such problems exist on the individual's PC. Then, the Scareware reports, in alarmist fashion, that harmful errors and other threats exist on the user's PC. Finally, Symantec informs the consumer that a handful of these issues may be fixed for free, but the individual must purchase the product to fully remove the remaining so-called errors."

I ran Norton about three years ago. Make sure that all of the BHOs (browser helper objects) & the like are removed from IE when you uninstall it. It was so much trouble I will never use it again. McAfee was never half the trouble that Norton was, but a bit heavy. I use Microsoft Security Essentials now, after a brief flirtation with the Panda Cloud (freeware). Panda was incredibly light, but prone to far too many false-positives. It didn't last a day on my laptop.
Answering the OP, avast! would be my automatic choice if I couldn't run MSE. I'll never use Norton again.

Well, different aps/AVs work differently on different computers. I think the Americans have a saying: 'varies with mileage'. I have heard that the new Norton is very good. I personally wouldn't touch Norton again with a barge pole. Besides, MSE is lighter & a lot cheaper. Freeware doesn't necessarily mean slackware. No one knows their own OS like Microsoft do, hence virtually no false-positives (I've never known one in over 18 months on two computers). The 64 bit MSE is so light & fast it's like its not there. Plus, let's face it, Microsoft is the biggest 'cloud' in the world.
