Microsoft Security Essentials vs. McAfee Internet Security-What to Use?

Post by ILoveGeeks on Fri Sep 17, 2010 9:38 pm

I currently use the FREE Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE)anti virus suite and am contemplating buying McAfee Internet Security. I have the oportunity to pay a very good price for McAfee for a 3 PC license ($35.00) The MSE anti virus has protected me very well so far but I would think that McAfee rates better than MSE. My question is should I stay with MSE or pay for the McAfee?
Thank you!

Hi, McAfee is better antivirus software for Local Area Network between 5 or more computers, and it's pretty awesome for Servers. But, if you are just normal user of one computer, you should stay with MSE because it's pretty good, also you can use Avira Antivirus or NOD32.

If you decide to buy McAfee, your computer will be a little bit slower.

MSE in my opinion is a good and reliable antivirus software for it's price of $0.

Or if you want, download the trail of McAFee and see which you prefer. But most of the time, MSE would be good enough. :smile2:

Hi ILoveGeeks,

If I were you, I would download Avira AntiVir Personal.

It's great, and hasn't given me any issues.

However, if you prefer to stay with one of those two, I would stick with Security Essentials because you said you haven't had any issues with it.

Why are you pushing Avira Antivir Personal?

I find that it has a great detection rate. It is also free, has never given me any issues, and doesn't hog up CPU.
