which virus scan?

I just upgraded to Windows 98 on my laptop. Now I need a virus scan program. I went shopping at Beyond.com but I couldn't figure out which to buy. They are all priced so differently.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Norton Anti-Virus 5 (or higher) has given me pretty good virus protection over the last year I have used it.  I was using McAffee virus scan before that but, McAffee didn't detect a lot of the viruses that Norton did, I was scared to find so many viruses existed on my computer even when I had a virus scanner (as I said, McAffee).  You really can't go wrong with Norton Anti-Virus.
