My anti-virus program is running out in a matter of weeks. I had Norton and to renew it it would cost me 40 bucks. My brother told me that Comcast(our cable provider) offered Mcafee for free and it was better than Norton, so I DLed it, but I had to remove Norton to make it work for some reason. Is it a good program? It said it was a 120 dollar value, but I have no clue wtf that means. I am DLing a shitload of movies on a BT site and don't want to have any problems. Another thing, since I uninstalled Norton, can I still get the renewal for 40 bucks if this new one sucks? Thanks in advance.

Buy ESET Smart Security. It has been just as efficient as F-secure and Norton, but it is cheaper and most of all, it doesn't use resources like those two. In fact it is faster than those, and it is very lite. I have been using it two years now, and will be using it until someone makes better one.

Actually all of this software discussion leads to one simple thing:

The best software is the one that adapt perfectly to YOUR needs.

To many, photoshop is the best, but its hard to use, in the other hand, google's picassa will let you do the same than ps, with just one "im gonna have luck" button.

If mcafee works for you, then thats one you must use.
