I'm very surprised about Norton's lead. I've always found it to be a resource hog and never had a positive experience with it......

I couldn't vote.....my stuff's not in the poll.

The Windows firewall, Microsoft Security Essentials, and PCTools ThreatFire are what always runs, and I have the free version of Malwarebytes that I manually run once a week. Combined with Adblock Plus and NoScript on my Firefox 3.6, nothing gets through.

I will have to agree. I work as tech support tech at an ISP and Norton Internet Security causes more issues than anything with the exception of malware. The verdict is still out on the 2010 version however. I haven't run into any problems with it thus far.
