Yup, keep with AVG, or else go with MS Security Essentials

Not only will Norton slow you down, but eventually they are going to start prompting you to re-up your subscription. It was free before, and it is now going to cost you.

Wouldn't advise using the server package it can create unwanted issues, regardless of what they use, say or claim.
