I have used Norton for years and find it a good product.

On Edit (to actually contribute): I have to use McAfee on my corporate systems and find it is an annoying resource hog. Haven't used Norton in 15 years so I can't add anything there.

Just read this article a few days ago. Geared more for enterprise but some of these guys sell to the consumer.

I use neither but have used both in the past. Both have been shown to slow down my computer and hog the memory.

Of the two I think McAfeee a tad less annoying than Norton

If you want "free" then look at Avast. I've used that for about 10 years now with no problems.

Normally I use Norton for anti-virus and firewall, Malwarebytes for anti-malware.

Have used Norton for years, doesn't slow anything down. If you have more than one computer you want it on, I think you can get a discounts on buying it in groups of three or five. Check out the Amazon pricing and download it with a key they send you after buying it.

If you do have a very old computer and it slows you down, I believe you can set it to do the daily scan sometime during the night, but you'll have to check that. I don't generally turn my computer off.
