    After problems with NIS 2007, I have done a clean install of Vista and a trial of F-Secure Internet Security 2007. So far, F-Secure is running very well and much lighter than when I tried it a year ago. I have noticed that scan results reveal tracking cookies which are neither blocked nor deleted by F-Secure. I am running in Normal mode. Should I select Custom and scan all files in real time scanning? I am using the HTTP scanner. Does anyone know how the new Panda Internet Security 2008 would compare? I assume F-Secure would have better detection capabilities, but I could easily be wrong.

    In my experience F-secure is better in detection. Although I'm not sure what the new mega detection engine from Panda can do.
    panda is much lighter though

    For me, I just have my AV program scan the well-known extentions in real-time scanning, and I have it scan all files in manual scanning. I think it could be enough for F-Secure. However, it also depends on your computer's usage.

    For F-Secure and Panda, I think I would go for F-Secure. However, if you care about detection rate, try F-Secure. If you care about resource usage, try Panda.
