Re: Antivirus

It's McAfee and that's all you need to decide to go for something else (that's a paraphrase of what the founder, John McAfee, has said let alone others here). If you're happy with what you've got the best advice is to stick with it.

Re: Antivirus

It is just a rebadged McAfee product although I am not sure which one.

My advice and that of others on the forum would be not to install BTVirus Protect/McAfee. It can cause problems on some computers and is a resource hog. Do a search of the forum to see the problems.

There are far better free antivirus programs available such as Avast Free and AVG Free. If you are a Windows 10 user, the Microsoft antivirus which comes with that is getting good reviews and is free.
