what antivirus to buy

My Mcafee subscription runs out in 6 days and they're offering a renew for 60 bux a year. its not about the money but i had some infections last year despite having uptodate definitions so i'm not sure its the best one out there.

other options?

kaspersky? Norton? or should i renew mcafee?

thx

MSE.

Anyone paying for anti-virus is wasting their money.

Commodo Internet Security. It's free, and it has features working better than most of paid counterparts. Kaspersky is utter garbage, it doesn't recognize very well-known viruses / trojans / rootkits anymore.

Thanks

Don't waste your time on jealously; sometimes you're ahead, sometimes you're behind.

The race is long, and in the end - it's only with yourself.

Last year I purchase Bit Defender and now it expired but existing customers receive emails with really good deals and discoounts.

I was given a Total Security for a laughable price which of course I took it in particular as it was up to 3 Pc.

Bit Defender is really awesome by the way and very light.

Top 10 antivirus for Win8

The list is quite similar to those lists that are not advertisers, anyone in the list is SAFE.

Some reviews show paid ones were worse than the non-paid ones.

I am great with Avast! (win7) especially that boot time scan. No problems at all. Real Time Protection. and FREE!

Why would anyone buy?
