I would like to start a discussion on the subject of Virus & Malware software plus system cleanup software, I am currently using Norton Internet Security & Norton Utilities plus I have used Malwarebytes and Comodo, I have been told that Norton uses a lot of space and can clog up the system and didn't stop me from getting a lot of Trojans and other types of viruses and malware, I have recently downloaded Comodo and this has found a lot of problems that were not detected by Norton as I am just about to upgrade my desktop, I want to install the best software, in the opinion of the users what do you think is the best to go for ?

A good question - but with no single answer I'm afraid.  Opinions differ widely based on a number of factors.
Have you taken a look on the Plusnet Community site  http://community.plus.net/forum/index.php/board,8.0.html  where there are already a number of threads covering this topic.

Personally I use Kaspersky on my Main PC and the FREE version of AVG on my other PC and the wife's laptop.
