  • u really should use switch to microsoft security essentials, it's way better than mcafeit detects more viruses than mcafe and i only use mcafe when i am internet browsing since it tells me when it's not a good site or when im downloading something it will stop me from doing it when it scans it and finds something suspicious, when i didn't have both, my computer had a worm on it that started making it slow, and then it downloaded itself on my laptop, and disabled my norton antivirus ( which was expired), and i couldn't get rid of it, and so had to take it to my uncle and it took him, 2 weeks to return it back to me and later told me that i had over 200 viruses and worms on it that that's why it was starting to work slow, so i would suggest u get microsoft security essentials instead since that was what he installed on my computer.
