    You've got a lot of nerve to call this dude a noob, noob. The notable difference between you and the video maker is that he is making videos that educate end users on how to use their computer more effectively, and you trash talk to appear like you are the shit. One look at your page confirms YOU AREN'T.

    I wasn't asking if you were promoting McAfee, I was questioning your motives as to why you replied to me in the first place.

    Why must you always resort to insulting me? "you fail" and saying my brain is "underdeveloped" isn't helping you convince me.
    Perhaps my statement was far-fetched, and GIMP can't really match up to photoshop, but Photoshop is expensive software. You get what you pay for. However, GIMP is brilliant for free software. The case is different with virus scanners, as you can get any free virus scanner that performs very well given it costs no money to use, but paid scanners aren't good for the money.

    "IT people" install XP because it's easier to do their job than using OSX. Have you ever heard of an admin that uses OSX for networking?
    Operating systems are all opinion-based. I prefer windows operating systems for the abundance of software, although I respect the fact that OSX is a very stable and streamlined OS. It just isn't what I'm looking for.
    Your comparisons are pretty weak.

    I'm saying that, being an "expert" and a tutor, he should know better than to install a tool which offers no significant boost in performance for the price the consumer pays.
    Also, you're comparing apples and oranges with your statements. With GIMP you can match anything Photoshop does. If not Pre-set then hell, you can find a plugin made by the community that probably does it for you. However, a tool like McAfee or any other scanner/firewall/etc. barely utilises user input to get things done.

  8. JunkFM

    Well, after not paying for a virus scanner since I built my computer, and previously using Norton and McAfee on my last machine, my statement stands. Avira Antivir, Spybot S&D and Malwarebytes Anti-malware are all you need to keep your computer running fine and malware-free.
    Are you trying to justify a purchase or do you truly believe defending McAfee will be acknowledged?

  9. JunkFM

    Popularity does not equal Quality. I've had experiences with McAfee. My conclusion is that it's a bloaty software which hogs too much memory, and it does so to perform at a certain level of mediocrity.
    Any free virus scanners can outperform any subscription-based one, and with less memory usage.
