I have been using the CA Internet Security Suite for over a year.  Simply 
because it is free.  I see nothing in those reviews that I could disagree 
with.  You could probably find a few sites with good reviews, but as soon as 
budgetary constraints permit I am changing to something else.... might even 
go with the various free stuff that is so popular here.

Norton was a verious serious resource hog for several years... especially in 
the various "suites" they offer.  Rumour has it they have cleaned up thier 
act, but I have not heard enough people say how wonderful it is now to make 
me want to buy it yet.
