Does the job but Kaspersky is better,
This review is from: McAfee Internet Security Suite 2008 (3 User Edition) (PC) (CD-ROM)
I have used Norton for many years but have switched to Kaspersky on my other PCs , however I got McAfee bundled with a new PC and as anti virus software is notoriously difficult to fully remove from a system I decided to stick with it. Most of the known security packages offer similar levels of functionality and security so for me the most important aspects are:
How much does it cost? A lot more than kaspersky.
How easy is it to use? Very poor interface and not intuitive.
What impact does it have on my PC's performance? I have a quad core machine and have been told by support engineers that it significantly effects performance.
How intrusive is it? Depends on how you configure it so no major problems.
So my general impressions is that its ok but not a patch on Kaspersky in terms of usability, cost and performance therefore I cannot recommend this product above Kaspersky, however if you get it bundled with your PC then stick with it for a while and see what you think. Having said this, it is still much better than Norton.
