My boss has the same mindset...one which I need to get him out of b/c he's a Norton freak....
Anyway, I second that Norton/McAfee are resource hogs/ineffective. Nod32 is one of the best, if you want to pay for one, and as for freeware, AVG is one of the best in that area. I use Nod32 on my systems, and I put AVG on my parent's computer.
