In many cases, you end up paying for the brand name and some bells and whistles when you buy Norton or McAfee; I tend to take comparisons with a grain of salt, since these differ in results and you do not know whether what the applications miss is important/widespread or not.
Whether you follow best practices in computing security will determine what you purchase or what you download for free. AVGFree is a very reliable anti-virus that updates frequently and will scan anything you download; it will also allow you to scan all or a part of your hard drive as well as providing a second layer of Email protection.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
