I found Total AV would spam me constantly wanting me to upgrade to the paid version.I have recently switched from ESET to Total AV. To be honest at the end of the contract I will switch back to ESET which I had previously used for years with no problems at all. I don't trust Total AV. You run a scan and it comes up with 12 tracking cookies for example, you clear them and then run Superantispyware and you get 47. Superantispyware used to do a good job of clearing cookies and so forth but now is less than useless
Thank you for your response, my friend, promise that I won't hold it against you for managing a branch of PC World, someone has to do itI use Windows Defender/Security Centre on all of my computers. There isn't a need for anything else.
I used to run PC World stores (don't hold it against me!) and the margins on these products are huge. The virus/malware protection isn't really any better than Microsoft's and the other chap they build into the packages just slows everything down.
Thank you guys & I appreciate your responses, I'll stick with Windows Defender at the moment as it seems to be working well without slowing down the machine.
