Last Customer Reviews: McAfee vs Spybot

Tony Cortez
I think that Mcafee antivirus is the simplest antivirus in the best sense of the word. I’ve never experienced any troubles with installing and tweaking it.
Marcus Sweeney
What I like about this program in particular is that it is very easy to use. I didn’t see a simpler antivirus app. It works without causing any problems for a user. The interface is also intuitive. Definitely recommend!
Brenda Brooks
This program is very easy to use. I grasped how to use all features pretty much instantly. I don’t even know how to install MS Word on my PC

So I got this in 2018, it did remove some spyware, but not all. Well last week I kept trying to play fallout 4 and was getting really bad frame rates. Did everything trying to fix it. Finally I went into thr game, and when it began to lag as usual, I brought up task maskmanager. The only item even remotely showing that it was using the disk was avast. Disk usage was at 100% but avast was using only 0.4mb. Weird I know. So I brought it up to see what it was doing, and it was in silent mode so as to not interfere with gaming. But then it popped a warning that some programs were slowing my machine. Opened that and only 3 things showed. Adobe reader, steam and spybot, that had the biggest bar of the 3. So I went back to task manager, still claimed spybot was using nothing. But I ended task on both its processes anyways, and bam! Disk usage dropped from 100% to just 7%. This program became the very thing it claimed to combat, and was being underhanded in hiding the fact that it was using 93% of the disk! I will never use this ever again
