It is only £2. Yes you can get free antivirus protection, but this come with support while others not. I prefer Norton, but this one is worth a go, vote for price not for product

Or you could have THIS FOR FREE for as many users as you want. Plus it doesn't slow your computer down like McAfee or Norton does.

Yes the McAfee is £2 and includes support, but what support do you need???

I worked for 2 years in a computer shop and i still have nightmares about removing McAfee from dell computers no other program i have used over the years has even come close to being as problematic as McAfee

Don't listen to him and get yourself a decent protection for your PC:

Unfortunately, here Security Essentials proved risible, successfully defending against only 66 out of the 100 live threats we tested. It managed to neutralise a further 16, but this still meant it was compromised 18 times, a wholly unacceptable result even for free software. In our weighted protection ratings, which penalise failure heavily and reward the neutralisation of a threat much less highly than completely defending against one, it scored only 124 points from a possible 300; the worst result in this year's tests.

You should understand that definitions are updated constantly, so that 'review' is based on the state of play around 80 updates ago.

Generally speaking, MSE is as good as any other, and considerably better than many

In response to @mememo, it's still as problematic. Thankfully, Revo does a great job of removing this paid-for malware.

I have McAfee at the moment and wouldn't recommend it as it runs the cpu at 100% which of course slows everything down and crashes pages. McAfee know there is a problem, just google it. Great price though if you want to give it a go. Just wish it was Norton at £2.

Well if we're all posting links I'll go with this one:

Admittedly I'm using Microsoft Security Essentials myself, I don't want to pay for virus protection but on the whole the paid for products do tend to be better, and £2 isn't bad. Looking at what I've just linked I may switch to Avast.

The important think to remember is that none of these products protect you completely!

What difference does it make if its a few months old, does that mean Microsoft's product must have improved in that time. If you look at any of their previous tests you'll see it always performs badly, and probably will when they publish the next set. I'd rather base my decision on actual tests like this than a collection of user reviews.

The difference the age of the definitions make is the most crucial aspect. It's akin to the difference between catching the flu 6 months before vaccination, and catching it 6 months after vaccination. The BCG jab you had wouldn't help at all.

I look at previous tests and I see that it consistently performs well when being tested or reviewed by people or publications what don't earn money through advertising. There was a 'bad patch' when version 3 was released, but that didn't last long. They're now on version 4.5, so any review that you see dated before April should be ignored completely.

This is getting silly now, so I'll take my leave and go watch the local carnival procession

I'd love to have a wager on that, I'm sure it will do badly, as it always done when properly tested by anyone. Enjoy the carnival.

Personally I wouldn't use mcafee products but for £2 its certainly a good price if comparing to other stores. Worth noting it looks like the 2012 version but probably upgrades to the latest for free

The price is wrong, it needs to include an additional £2 minimum you'll have to spend on aspirins required during the installation, use and attempted uninstallation of this product once you realise your new i7 with 16GB ram and SSD runs like a 3 legged rabies infected dog that has just been run over by a steam roller.

This isn't an antivirus or internet security software its glorified parental controls and still not worth £2

As said above cold, its not antivirus like op said

just get Bitdefender for like £15, not worth the risk.
