not sure, but i heard that getting them to stop charging your credit card is pretty hard.

I strongly suggest not installing and paying for McAfee. Kapersky is a good anti virus prog but it is incredibly resource intensive and really not worth the money.

i down load gigs of vids and progs a month and Malewarebytes has been more than adequete

I've never had protection on my laptop in the three years I've owned it, never had an infection or problem.

I've un-installed it a few times with no hassle.

for many years i have used avira antivir.
It is free and provides protection in real time.

Malware bytes anti malware- free edition - does not provide real time protection.

As you can see avira comes pretty high on the list.

I had McAfee through my ISP, hated it. Several viruses got through, not to mention all them pups.
I agree with sys, Malwarebytes is good, and took care of all the crap that McAfee missed, and I only use the free basic version.
When I changed ISP, wanted Nortons but was too expensive, so went with AVG and am happy with it. AVG has withstood two attacks on my 'puter's that I know of, the only thing, I have an older smart phone and AVG won't work on it. Missed the build # by one digit! LOL
Deleting McAfee wasn't hard, but do it as administrator so you can get all the junk it leaves in system and program and temp folders.

If you have latest Win 10, Windows Defender with Malwarebytes is all you need - unless you frequent porn and other dodgy sites, then all bets are off.

That is what I do also.
I use the Security Essentials for the watch dog and minor stuff and then use Malware on manual if anything pops up.
Usually Security has taken care of it already but I like to make sure.
Just stupid somethings that try to get in from some redirect site or who knows what.

Smile Don't run any "AV" software - Virtualize and exercise discretion

I suggest not running any, as all it really does is slow your computer down. You would probably be better suited to browse the web from within a virtual environment (install windows inside of vmware or virtualbox) and exercise discretion when viewing certain content. What you could also do is install security addons within your browser such as no-script, ghostery, and/or uBlock. Malware is so far beyond what anti-virus software can detect in this day and age that it is pretty much counter-productive to even install any of it. Hope that helped.
