Somewhat to my surprise McAfee and Norton have come off clean on two Windows 7 systems.
For my core trading systems, I now use Microsoft Security Essentials with weekly scans. It's fast and take nominal resources during the day. My core trading systems only have broker software and data feed on it.
I have Norton 2012 (was 2011 until a few days ago) for my main system. Also light with lots of good benefits, such as the file/download community validation. Combined with IE9 and the new aggressive privacy settings, that seems like a good combo (even though I like FF better).
