My McAfee package is about to fall due for renewal. A friend told me about Microsoft Security Essentials, which is free and is as good as McAfee, he reckons.
I downloaded the Microsoft Security Essentials. It failed to complete a full scan the first 2 times I tried it but I left it running overnight last night and it succeeded in doing the full scan.
My McAfee normally only finds tracking cookies. I did a McAfee scan before the Microsoft one last night and it said that my system was clean at the end of it. Like I said, I then did the Microsoft scan during the night and it picked up one tracking cookie and a number of trojans.
My question is, is the Microsoft Security Essentials better and should I therefore let my McAfee lapse? Is anyone else here using it? Thanks.
