Just stick with Windows Defender, its free, its good, and it comes preinstalled.

 

Same !  I'll uninstall all the Evaluation Anti-virus that typically comes with new PC.


Just turn on the Microsoft Defender on my PC. Just ensure it is "Upgraded" regularly as part of the Windows patches.

 

Don't have to worry about your antivirus subscription expiry.

 

Good enough.

Anyone into downloading a lot of stuff especially shady apps, files, can't tell if they got a phishing email or freebie stuff from questionable sites, visiting sites with lots of hidden pop up and clickbait stuff sending you to other sites... PORN or game sites especially. Plus you are not a savvy computer user, best you get an antivirus that also have internet security and protection features.

 

I am not a fan of McAfee and Norton in particular.. bloody bloatware (and NAGGY-ware) and with big footprints on your system resources. If your PC is an old clunker many years old, older OS and have just minimum ram capacity, it takes up enough space to slow your system down. I am using Windows Defender on all my PCs and my notebook which I keep and use in office have antivirus with internet security protection from ESET Nod32. Years ago, NOD32 has one of the smallest footprint for computer. It has gotten a little bloated in recent years but I feel not as bad as the other established brands like those I mentioned. Kaspersky is also not bad.

Was a loyal customer of McAfee for over 10 years and renewed my 3-PC subscription diligently for "peace-of-mind". One day comp was infected by a kind of Inter-Yield virus. My most updated McAfee could not detect and I wrote to them for help in the removal of virus. Guess what? They replied they will do an online scanning and removal of whatever virus there was for me. For a fee of several hundred dollars. So I asked them whats the point of paying them for over a decade for "protection", and when an attack strikes they will provide the "cure" for a fee which costs several times more than the annual subscription? They replied it actually costs even more to remove viruses for non-subscribers. I was like 😲!

Introduced to Avast FOC. It was what detected the Inter-Yield virus hidden in the boot sector. Removed and comp has been using this freeware ever since. Thinking back how much I spent on McAfee for protection, no words can describe the disappointment (and stupidity).

I too had been with Norton and McAfee since my school days, and had a number of virus situations... but switched to Avast in 2008 and have had no issues since.

I've recently gone for their premium paid subscription. Especially now days with so much online meetings and media streaming and not to mention working from home.

Cheers, Mike  :- )
