When my Norton AV subscription became due I was so disappointed to see that the cost was about the same as the complete boxed package that I decided to uninstall it and try the free Avast click here. In my opinion it is just as good as Norton and doesn't hog the computer resources nearly as much.

I agree with Gongoozler, I switched to Avast last month and very happy. You can also try AVG click here which is free as well. Personally I found Avast better as I had problems configuring the email scanner in AVG. and the updates in Avast are more automatic than in AVG.

Give them both a try and see what works for you.

There is no point whatsoever for a home user to pay for an AV. AVG or Avast both as good as one another.
