When it comes to corporate environments, I find that Symantec is superior. It is easier to manage and you can clean multiple systems at a time, among other features.
I have little experience with McAfee's corporate products (except Majic, which sucks) but their home AV and anti spyware tools are pretty darn good.
Of here at MS, our Anti Spyware tool is still in beta but I'm surprised at how good it is, for a beta. It's ALMOST as good as AdAware, but superior to SpyBot, IMO, because it gets updated alot more often.
While working at MS, the biggest problems I see with Symantec/Norton is that most of their customers are using outdated filter drivers. These drivers run at the kernel level and the older ones can cause performance issues or blue screens. The problem is that their auto update feature doesn't work on updating drivers.
