I have a question. Does it update automatically?
Because recently I tried McAfee(paid version) for 15 days and it does not update automatically. All the time i have to do is the manual update. A security software should be designed to update automatically so that i don't need to open its user interface. Also it was not performing scheduled scans, quick clean automatically which he supposed to do! Thinking of buying ESET .

Only you can answer this question by checking the product settings. If auto-update is turned on, it means it works. McAfee doesn't release definitions more than 1-2 times a day and auto-update only checks every 8 hours if I am not wrong. It might happen that updates don't get installed immediately, and are later discovered when you run manual update.

McAfee does do automatic updates daily, but most of the protection is in the cloud now.

I have to think because I already have F-Secure with me, purchasing of another software will waste my money. I should have tried McAfee trial (6 months available here). Didn't checked it. It is my fault!
Also I'm thinking of a full reset of my laptop. After that I'll install McAfee and transfer F-Secure to desktop! And will see what it behaves.

McAfee has a 6 months trial promo since forever. You can claim that from here.

You’ll find it to be much lighter than f-secure. At least in my experience, it is.
