I'll put in a good word for Microsoft Security Essentials, too. A while back, my ISP started offering Norton as its security freebie. I was quickly reminded of why I'd given up on Norton products years earlier. It was a serious resource hog, as well as intrusive and annoying. After checking the reviews at Maximum PC (most reliable source for such info, IMHO) I dumped it in favor of the Microsoft freebie, and I've been very pleased with it.
