alright guys, i have been offer a payed version of Mcafee for free. i have heard some bad **** about it, that it is basically 'a virus' on it's own and fuckes up your windwos. Is this true, am I good to go or should I just stick with windows defender and Ccleaner?

BTW aren't there like many features on Mcafee? I basically don't know what the software can do expect for deleting my virusses from illegally downloaded games.

Thanks

um...I recommend not illegally downloading games.

As far as the effectiveness of Mcafee, no idea. I'm skeptical at best since it's always bundled with prebuilts and laptops, even my ISP tries to upsell customers on it, seems like that's the only way they get it in the hands of users.

CCleaner

Not for antimalware.

Windows Defender

Decent on Win 10 for the average user, but you should still probably back it up with a scanning tool such as Malwarebytes Free.

McAfee

Seems to score well enough in tests but I've had bad experiences with it. If you wanted something stronger than Defender for free I'd look toward Bitdefender Free, although there are a bunch of other options (Avast, Avira, Kaspersky, etc. etc.).
