system suite...ie norton, mcafee, karpersky

What is a very good system suite to do it all, virus , spyware and utilities. In the utilities part I need something that will clean up hard drive, defrag, clean up registery. I here all kinds of horror stoires about Norton and McAfee and some on Kerpersky. Right now I using Norton trial that came with computer, 50 days left. I don't like it. Any suggestions on something that is very good and not a resource hog.

I'd go for NOD 32 Antivirus or even better the entire security suite from ESET.

Personally I chose BIT DEFENDER INTERNET SECURITY for one year license, but I'll be buying the NOD32 suite pretty soon.

One alternative - light on system resources is the Avira Premium suite. Quite good too.

Kaspersky have licensed some of their software to other people (ZoneAlarm, Comodo, etc) which has created compatibility problems between Kaspersky AV and several firewall programs where bits overlap. Buying a full suite from one source, whether Kaspersky, Eset or ZoneAlarm gets round that problem.

McAfee does not have a version that runs on Vista 64. I am using Symantec AV.
