Default Which one to pick?

Apparently, there are different versions from Newegg for the same product. The product in mind is "Norton Internet Security 2009". Why does Newegg have different pricing of the same software? I just don't get it. Maybe for more multi-license pack? Look at this:

Newegg.com - Windows, Symantec, Security / Utilities Software, Software, Software

The one I'm looking to get is the OEM builder's pack of Norton Internet Security 2009. It has the best price at $35 which is pretty good compared to most products out there and you're getting tons of protection!!!

I would stay away from Norton as much as possible unless you really want it. There are much better free alternatives out there

Hello. The others are easier to remove if you don't like them too.

Norton is easy to remove...Use the Norton Removal tool. Its gone with a few clicks....

AVG, Avast or NOD32 would be a much better choice. If you are looking for Internet Security Suites check out Smart Security from Eset.
