Several years ago when I started looking into Anti Virus programs the big contenders where Norton and McAfee. I fell into the Norton camp and then afterward decided to move on to other AV programs. I've downloaded a few "free" ones and have not had much success with them.
In thinking about adopting another AV program I recall not having heard of McAfee for some time. I know they are still around and active but are they as popular as they once where. I don't know anybody who has a McAfee AV program either. What's the scoop with them, if it ever came down to Norton and McAfee, is McAfee better? The Same? Worse?
As for other retail AV programs out there, what is preferable.
For those interested I downloaded AVAST and another AV program (panda??) and both screwed up my PC big time.
What about Kaspersky, it's available retail (Bestbuy) as well.
