In the recent past, Norton's annual Security Suite update (including their AV software) has been bloatware central -- a humongous, resource-hogging quagmire. However, it appears that Symantec has finally noticed the the defectors from their camp and taken action to attract them back into the fold. The new 2009 version appears to be a complete rework and is a lean, mean, security machine. Highly recommended. Hopefully, they've learned their lesson and the 2010 version will be equally efficient.
