I'm using avast at the moment. Seems okay but does pester you a bit to upgrade to the paid version.
I'm sure it will have its critics but I've been using avg free for years and never had any problems. The only time we ended up with a trial version of Mcfee on a new computer it stopped so many programs from working properly. Not a fan at all

Nope they haven't and I also 100% agree. Persuaded by pc world staff to buy it when I was getting a replacement laptop. Ditched the subscription half way through and went back to Norton, have been using that for years.
Check av-test.org for results on free and paid for anti virus programmes be for you decide on what to get.
Never pay for antivirus, the free ones are better. It's well known that McAfee is a resource hog and slows down systems

As with anything free there is always a disparity compared to purchasing a full version of a product where features will obviously be limited. Depending on a users browsing activity and that they stay well away of sites that are dodgy then the free version should be fine, but you should always do your homework when choosing any antivirus software as they are all not equal. 😏

dont bother with this as it does not stop malware or trojons. as for removing virus yes mcafee do that but they charge you extra on top of your sub and will remove it or give you your money back.i use lifesafe and it seems to work no problem but also covers everything from mobile phone to ipad,laptop etc. but the fact that if my kids lose their phones or ipads i can track them or remotely wipe them but the best part is it will take a pic if the user enters wrong passcode so you will have proof of who has your phone (device) and the location of where it was tried.
Info only - some BT Broadband contracts include McAfee Security - I only found out last week, it showed in my account home page - so was able to download. Just in case like me you are with BT and didn't realise.

Several machines, so I could can compare with Norton and Kaspersky, there are faster versions but the virus detection rates were poor - well that's what I believed then, which is the reason I had used it for so many years, plus it was free from my workplace. Now change software often but have gone to Norton 360 but will probably change again - they are all roughly similar in terms of detection, speed and resource hogging is more important
Bought. Cheapest legit Office 365 Home I could find. Shame I missed the £40 deal a few weeks ago, will keep my eye out in future! Will hopefully be able to flog the Mcafee for a tenner, seems to retail at £25 which is nuts!

"Cullies" spot on. Forget the "they've improved over the last 4 years". If you want to slow down and screw up your computer go ahead. Take a look at its creator....says it all.... venturebeat.com/201…on/
anyone bought it already and like to share it here?
Yea I must admit since installing this on our pc it has got a hell of a lot slower then before plus it's always scanning in the background which I think is unnecessary tbh.

Still I suppose I'm safe from the hackers wanting to know what websites I'm visiting the nosy gits!

It's worth pointing out that most if not all by now ISP's provide some sort of anti virus software with their broadband supply - so check your account before buying anything.

As the first thing one does upon receipt of a new PC is to remove this odious program (and then updating Windows inbuilt Defender), why would anyone wish to spend a fiver on such bloatware???
On a personal note I would avoid using this particular brand.
Came pre-installed on win 10 computer and just slowed it down.
Even after uninstall on computer using add remove programme functiion some traces of the software remain.
You need to go to mc**** website and download small software programme to fully uninstall.
Why intel purchased this brand is beyond me, they need to ditch that name and rebrand both name and products. Avoid

Microsoft security essentials, malwarebytes and common sense is all you … Microsoft security essentials, malwarebytes and common sense is all you need now days for Windows



The common sense is the part I've found most struggle with when using a computer, or you know kids who just tend to install random stuff on your PC.

I still think getting a anti-virus better than Windows essential is a good idea, though there are better options out there, I use Kaspersky because I get it free with my Barclays account. McAfee is by far the worst Anti-Virus software I've come across, my brother just last week uninstalled his copy and went back to Norton, You'd think after being bought out by Intel they'd improve but they are still as bad as ever.
Had it for years, except for last year when used free copy and defender which was rubbish.... thanks for this it's such a good bargain as was £80! Cheers Neil
