McAfee, I would say. Although, at the moment, I am using AVG which I think is much better than both of these, and best of all-it's free!
But, yeah, McAfee is better, as Norton gets infected very easily.
Hope this helps,

The question about which is better has been the subject of much debate, without any sort of resolution, as a search on this forum to find all references to either of the specific applications will demonstrate.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
