I disagree.

In our troubleshooting environment, we use 4 applications to remove spyware
/ malware / virus infections from customer systems - AVG, MS Antispyware,
Ad-Aware PE and Spybot S&D. We've found that it takes 4+ applications plus
some manual digging with Hijack This and RegscrubXP to get rid of the most
serious infections.

As far as Norton goes, totally and fully agree - get rid of it.

I concur.  Been there done that got the viruses.  If it weren't for AVG I
would probably have had to format my hard drive.

MS software doesn't work all that well in production versions.  Don't put
their beta's on any machine that is anything else but a test machine.
