My Mcafee is about to expire. Should I dump it for avast or avg?
Which is less consuming?
I a sure it is going to boil down to what each end user feels comfortable with .. i have been a McAfee user for a long time .. maybe 10 years and i am very happy and wont change .. i totally hate nortons
I like AVG a lot. I haven't used McAfee for a long time though. It SUCKED the last time I used it, so I will probably never go back.
AVG has been great.
lose it. Mc Afee or Norton is not used by geeks.
Way to much overhead way to invasive and too much trouble when something goes bad.
i second AVG....i've been using it for a couple years now....used norton and mcafee before it, and will NEVER go back to either one....can't speak on avast as i've never used it...
I had McAfee years ago and it sucked. I've Never used Avast or Norton so I don't know about those. Use AVG now and I like it.
AVG here too.. it finds more then McAfee ever thought about...
AVG hear too. I've used it for about three years now. Well satisfied.
I use ESET Nod 32 and Malwarebytes both run flawlessly and don't bog my CPU down.
Norton is a bloated behemoth, each year it consumes more resources.
Go with Kaspersky. It's always the best and is light weight. The rest are useless and bloated.
I vote for Comodo firewall/antivirus
AVG here for all 6 machines, only 'cause they have the root key search index, this is where most virus's hang out now a days.
Avast home edition and it's free. Four years now and no hits.
On a bit of a side note with AVG I did have a problem installing my colorchoice Rip. It would not work untill I uninstalled AVG. It caused a 101 error and would not install. Exiting the AVG did not help (had to uninstall). Once colorchoice was installed I re-installed AVG and all has been ok.
