i can install mcafee internet security again for free thanks to BT,i know these internet security programs do use a few resources,in the past they never really caused any issues for me but since am runing a older machine i need as much performance as possible,so am asking you fuckers what would you do..

install mcafee internet security or maybe install another anti virus like avg along  with something like malwarebytes

Hi Soul,

Personally there would be two AV products that I would recommend

1:

It is very lightweight and does come with a 'Gaming' mode, don't think that I've ever had a problem with it. Is free as well :P

Direct from Microsoft, does require a genuine version of Windows XP, Vista or 7 however. I haven't had too much experience with it (although I am currently using it to give it a try) but it is highly recommended in the forums I tend to hang around.

I personally hate AVG and don't bother with Spyware as I use Windows 7 and use MS Defender.

There is my two pence,

Odini

McAfee, Norton and AVG are bloated beasts, far too intrusive even when you configure them.

I got MS Security Essentials. Done the job for me when i got something nasty but for the most part, as long as you surf safe, you shouldn't need it.

I got MSSE just to give it a bash after last weekend but for over 3 years i've run with none without a problem and only ever got one to prove the system was still clean. It was.

Avast isn't bad though. I have limited experience but from what i saw when using it, you can do a lot worse.

the enterprise version is nothing like the ones you buy in pc world etc, in my experiance it's far quicker to load at start up etc and less intrusive than any other anti virus i've used so far

We use McAfee at work and it really does slow down our machines. Consumes around 64MB of RAM and on slower machines, boot ups are really unresponsive.

Mind you, our network admins aren't the world's best, hence it may well be more to do with that then anything else.
