    MSE is generally OK, but has no good 0-day protection. Good signature based protection is not enough these days, but people still like and base opinions on signature tests.

    If you are willing to part with a buck, ESET and Kaspersky are your friends.

    If not, Avast will do just fine, presuming you're not frequenting questionable sites at all times and are actually applying common sense...and Malwarebytes is a must.

    McAfee is good Antivirus but it is quite slow. You should go for a fast and light antivirus program, which provides cloud based protection and always remain up to date to protect from malware. I’m using Immunet Plus and it’s really good in providing protection against malware, virus, bots etc.

    Plus Mr. McAfee is wanted for questioning about the murder of his neighbor.

    I use McAfee and never had any issues with it. Been using it for 3 years so far.
