I think the engine is pretty weak and the brand is idiotic "Mcafee"? Stick with stronger apps - Kaspersky, Norton, BitDefender.

Hi there
I really wouldn't bother with this -- I'm sure MSE (Microsoft Security Essentials) is a FAR FAR better bet -- and you don't have to register either.

These days give AS LITTLE details out over the web as possible. You never know where it will end up or who will be using the data you supply.

MSE is updated almost daily and done automatically when you update your system.

It sits in the background -- hardly noticeable and gives real time protection too.

I'd avoid people like macfee -- they are only around these days because of the amount of large corporate accounts they had in the past -- and protecting a corporate network is a totally different ballgame to providing protection for one or two home workstations.

Overdoing security is actually worse than none --you'll be blown away with "false positives" etc etc.

Keep it small, simple and efficient -- go for MSE.

Cheers
jimbo

Firewall is easily configurable.

Attachment 27804

Interface is very simple. I guess its because its a beta version. Mcafee total protection 2009 has a different GUI altogether.

Attachment 27802

Will check on the detections and heuristics later.

Overall a very nice product. But can slow down old computers.
Nevertheless, if you've got 4 GB RAM, would you mind giving 40-50 MB towards security?

McAfee uses a lot of memory
Kaspersky uses less

Well if you're talking about RAM usage comparison, Avast uses only 2-4 MB RAM, which is the lightest.

How much RAM does Norton 360 use on your machine Dinesh?

I found that when using Firefox Avast! 5 Free used on average 3MB more than Norton, using around 13MB but all other times when idle Avast! used around 6MB.

Sometimes Norton 360 V4 uses around 25-30 Mb but sometimes it uses around 4-8 MB.
