I have been using the 'much loved' mcafee for a couple of years now as I have never experienced the problems others have described.

The major threats for our computer when we are connected to the Internet are viruses, that can permanently damage our system or destroy important data.
To avoid this type of problem we have to have an antivirus application, like Mc Afee Virus Scan, installed on our computer.Once installed, Mc Afee's Virus Scan will keep itself up-to-date by updating the virus definition files every day. This ensures that each machine has the latest protection against viruses, spyware, adware, and other malware. You may need to restart the computer and repeat this process several times in order to install all available updates. I've had Windows Defender in Windows 10 do that constantly scanning thing and the vast majority of the time, it is doing that because it has detected something and wants to remove/quarantine it.Our Enterprise Public Beta Program gathers customer feedback before a product release.Mc Afee Virus Scan has a very complete virus database that will detect any virus that threatens our system and immediately remove it.
