Dumped McAfee (morfed into serious bloatware). Never even touched Symantec with plyers (bloatware re-invented, well still behind RealPlayer I will happily admit). Switched everything to AVG. It’s free.
As for security, for whoever cares, this suite suites me really fine, it’s all excellent, high quality software.
- Anti-Virus: AVG Free
- Anti Spyware: SpyBot Search and Destroy
- Anti Adware: Ad-Aware
- Encrypted storage of data: TrueCrypt
Note that since I switched to Firefox, added Ad-Block Plus and kill all but a few selected cookies when I close it, has more or less nixed the need for spybot and Ad-Aware. A scan per two weeks is fine.
