There was a time that I and my daughter both had Norton and we both got viruses on our machines. Have never tried McAfee, but both of the game download sites that I got casual games from~ Big Fish Games and Gamehouse which guarantee their downloads to be virus free,both of them use McAfee.

I used Trend Micro for a few years with no problem and was very impressed when it actually removed a virus and restored a file instead of just quarantining a virus infected file,which all that the anti-virus usually does! Same with Microsoft Security Essentials which was the top-rated Free anti-virus software according to PC Magazine a few years ago when I got my first laptop,and had until this April when support ended for Windows XP,and I am now using Avast,but will probably soon purchase Trend Micro again, since like I said I have only seen Trend Micro and MSE actually clean and restore any virus infected files instead of just the usual quarantine!

Norton was installed on my Windows 8 HP desktop so I went with it. First year was 39 or 49, this year it was 79 a little steep. But it has blocked a number of threats.

Previous XP machine, used spybot for many years, its no good anymore. Avast not much better. MSE was the best.

I've used Norton 360 protection for several years, without any problems.

Usually a year subscription which will cover 3 machines has cost me around $49.99. This year they automatically charged me from my account, $79.99. I went to the Norton website & saw the Best Deal listed at $49.99
Norton AntiVirus, Norton Internet Security and Norton 360 - Symantec Store

I called their customer service, explained the situation. They reimbursed me $30 to my account, charging me the $49.99 for Norton 360 this year.

FWIW: Currently Amazon has the 3PC version for 19.99. But Staples now has a 110% price guarantee dropping the price to 13.99 which can either be done in the stores or phoned in to Staples.com. There are no mail-in rebates to deal with.

As a reminder, if you are out of town not connected to the network for an extended time it will not take updates until it can verify if you still subscribe to Comcast (which Xfinity is) .

I have Verizon. So I guess it should be good in that regard?

It's always concerning when I see people giving incorrect advice like this. If you're not familiar with the Xfinity Norton offering and computers it's best not to give incorrect advice so people on this forum will not get confused.

When you use the Norton Security Suite offering from Comcast, it authenticates a unique serial # against an account. As long as the account is active (and the computer has not been removed from the account), it will continue to receive updates.

I never connect my tablet to Comcast since it has LTE. It has continued to receive updates for the Xfinity Norton Security Suite.
