ZoneAlarm Security Suite is the best for my money (at home). It has a great firewall, decent AV and AntiSpyware combination, along with other features. I used to be a Symantec snob, but I do not like their [Symantec's] firewall product at all. And you have to have at least the triumvirate - Firewall, AntiVirus, and AntiSpyware, to operate on the Internet in relative safety (if you can call it that).
I'm running Windows Live OneCare on the kid's PC, which, for the price (free), was fine for that machine. They don't have email, just games and approved (by me) websites.
I've used CA AV and I've demoed BitDefender and Trend Micro. I wasn't too impressed with any of them, either because of interface, feature set, or functionality.
I still consider Symantec and McAfee to be the standard by which all others are measured.
For corporate AV, I'm still on board with Symantec.
