I work for Sprint and corporate standard is McAfee. My opinion, running Norton Antivirus at home, McAfee at work, I think McAfee is the best of the two. Every Antivirus "shootout" so to speak has declared McAfee either the best or very very close to the top. Another reason Sprint uses them is just as you mentioned....cost. McAfee gives a much greater break to Corps. buying seats in bulk or site licensing like Sprint has.

My opinion is you won't go wrong using Network Associates product, McAfee Antivirus.

PS. I have no vested interest in Network Associates.

I am looking to protect my company's computers, running Windows, from
viruses.  McAfee and Data Fellows offer network suites for around $70 a
seat.  That seems pricy and the boss is reluctant to spend $500-$800 for 6
to 10 seats.  He and I wonder why we can't go to CompUSA and buy six copies
of McAfee for $15 a piece.  Wouldn't that be just as good?  I think the
network suites offer better upgrading capabilities, e.g. unattended and
daily.  Since it is a small office I could go around and upgrade the
computers myself weekly.  Would it be wrong to get a few copies of the $15
package?  Is it any different?
