When I did double click it, I remember getting a standard windows dialog box. I believe it said the path did not exist or shortcut unavailable..

For years in North America there was only one question you'd ask yourself when it was time to buy antivirus software for your Windows PC: Do I want Norton or McAfee? There are far more choices these days (see our complete antivirus roundup for proof), but Norton and McAfee remain two of the top options under consideration today.

To answer the question of how these two American heavyweights compare today, we evaluate the nuts and bolts of each one's premium suite: McAfee Total Protection and Norton Security Premium.

Read on for the results.

McAfee vs. Norton: App design

Norton Security Premium

Both applications look nice enough and are relatively easy to understand. McAfee opted for a design with a left rail for navigation and an additional menu at the top of the window. The main part of the window, meanwhile, is where you access most features and see information about your PC's security status. Overall, it's a pretty good design, but McAfee's tendency to split options between the main window and left rail can be a little confusing.

Symantec opts for a more tablet-like approach: Norton Security Premium has five panels that you can tap or click on (depending on whether you have a touchscreen) to reveal each panel's options. It's a very easy application to navigate with no real issues of confusion.

Winner: Norton

McAfee vs. Norton: Performance

McAfee Total Protection

Looking at our in-house tests, Norton performed very well in the PC Mark 8 test based on our most recent review, while McAfee did not. McAfee also didn't perform as well as Norton in the Handbrake test, which involves taking a 3.8GB MKV HD file and converting it to Handbrake's Android tablet preset.

Winner: Norton
