Same thoughts .Not good not bad, KIS has better protection in default settings despite being a consumer product. In my main system it was a resource hog, in the VM runs faster.
Don't use any Endpoint AV on a laptop it will drain your battery.Indeed McAfee EP is a resource hog. It made my old laptop nearly unusable, I had to delete it after.
Can you install SEP or the Mcafee enpoint firewall ONLY portion?Don't use any Endpoint AV on a laptop it will drain your battery.
Try a low resource non signature av.
Voodoo shield / H_C/comodo firewall(cruel settings)/OS Armour .
Are good alternative.
And if you are looking for a "smart firewall"
Try SEP in network and host mitigation only config.
Are u sure it is last? For what i know last version wasDirect link from MacAfee Signed by MacAfee!
Remember to install only client files for no term limit lifetime usage.
This happen when them release a new version... For what i know SEP work so too... when them release new versions.I was testing this, but it stopped working after I tried to upgrade to a new version a few weeks back. I decided to ditch it, rather than uninstall and reinstall it.
