Adaware, Malwarebites, SuperAntivirus or Norton

I have always used Norton, more recently Norton 360 with Adaware and Spybot. I have a new PC with Vista and after reading some views on here and CNET, i am wondering which to use. Adaware seems to get some rough reviews. Also would like to know which use the least resource.

If you are happy with Norton keep it,Just search about and find the cheapest price.Nod 32[eset] is supposed to be the best Anti-virus.As for your Anti-Spyware, Adaware and Spybot might not be as good as some of the other freebies about today.3 of the best freebies are Malwarebytes.Superantispyware and A Squared,Any 2 out of those 3 would be better than what you have.
Not sure if there are any conflicts with Norton and Superantispyware so I would probably go for the other 2.

no conflicts with Norton and Superantispyware. I use both. Not keen on adaware.

buteman sums it all up very well.
