using norton 360, not feeling that well protected by it, but it works. eventually, I'll probably run a combo of Norton System Utilities and ESET Smart Security. ESET's preemptive virus filters ftw, goodbye zero day attacks.

I really do enjoy using ESET, and I enjoy it even more when MAXIMUM PC puts it through thier test and it gets a 9/10.
 No parental control( No problem because I dont let  my parents use my my computerOuch,like they would want to anyway...lol) & no identity protection (staying  away from questionable sites isnt that hard to do.) is not a problem for me.

I've been using Vipre and it seems to do a pretty good job w/o being too much of a resource hog.

I know that lol. Norton System Utilities is just the little scheduled utility software Norton 360 comes with, no AV. its just the convienience of having it automatically defrag, clean the registry, etc.

been using Norton 360 for 2 years & windows defender (I was using Giant Antispyware before Windows bought it up).  no problems and I surf it all!.  though I make sure the router is "tight" as mentioned somewhere else in this thread. 
 
as for "free" stuff - I agree with the notion that you get what you pay for.  therefore, if u didn't pay anything you don't get anything (or much).

I have used Norton, McAfee, and Kaspersky and ESET. ESET is the best. It is so fast. I never even noticed it on my old Dell pc (Pentium 4, 1gb of ram...) Norton was the slowest and slowed my oc considerably. Kaspersky was good...but updates took forever. I don't know what's up with that.

 I've used Kasperksy for a few years now on several machines, and its always worked well with. I think I've had one false positive the entire time I've had it.

  On my new DSO machine I'll probably just use MSE since the system is just for gaming, plus with using FF and NoScript addons I think I'll be safe with what little web browsing I will do on it.

I have used about everything there is out there, and from my experience Kaspersky is by far the best anti-virus bundle.

I was faithful user of Norton, untill I tried Kaspersky which found 70+ threats on my system. but then again I dont do much with my computer in the way of downloading or surfing.

I then tried it on my wifes system who chooses to only use free anti-virus software ie AVG and Avast. When Kaspersky found over 12,000 threats on her machine she switched to using Kaspersky. Mind you, that some of the threats were P2P software ie Limewire but still thats a ton of threats to find on any machine, as soon as we ran Kaspersky all of the strange little bugs on her system went away, we have not looked back since.

You get what you pay for in antivirus, the $70 I spent on Kaspersky came with a license for 3 computers and has not let me down yet. I would recommend this product to anyone, its not noticeable on a low end system and does smart scanning (only scans when your computer is idle). Do some research and you will come to the same conclusion.

You can try Kaspersky for free by visiting there website @ www.kaspersky.com.

 I run 2 LAN's, one for online game's, one for doing [other stuff]. For my game LAN I realy like webroot.
 
 Why you ask, well once upon a time I was the CEO of a turn-key-network corp. We did server farms, router racks, IPX closets, workstations all that smack.
 
  I have used every brand anti-whatever you can name in our R/D lab.  Norton is good, but Webroot has a smaller footprint. It's your call. I'd buy the cheep one if it were me.
 
 If you want real protection go on ebay an buy a Sun Spark 20, install HP-UNIX 11, d/l Smoothwall, the best firewall ever, an lockNload.
 
If you don't want to do all that just install your Norton. You know it so the learning curve is zero. Kick back an game.
 
end of line,
