I use Norton Corporate edition 8 ... basically it is norton 2004.

But it does use a lot of resources as well.

I use antvir on all of my workstations. I install that on every computer I repair. I also try to get users to change from IE to another browser due to the recent virus outbreak on IE. Antivir has been almost transparent even on the smaller workstations.
