Which internet security product will you choose for 2012, and why (ie. a feature, you have history with it, 'it just works')?

My first choice (please don't throw anything at me for saying this) is actually Norton, largely because of the way it performed in this test against 17 pieces of malware. I think they finally got it together.

Second choice would be Comodo based on the high number of respected people who continually evangelise their product - it must be good.

It would be great to hear your thoughts, and perhaps even for me to turn them into blog posts on my antivirus software site.

What will you choose in 2012?

MSE. Because it just works, and most of the time I forget that it's even there. And Windows firewall, for the same reason.

I can't see a convincing argument for using a third-party solution for day-to-day security; I'm particularly averse to paying for a service that I can get for free.

That's so interesting. Would it be worthwhile for me to put together a review of MSE vs. Norton?
