Have anyone tested TotalAV please share the details if any
It’s based on Avira and recent versions include cloud as well.
However, you can get the same technology with Avira for free.

Stay away of this software for now, as they practice very dodgy advertisement schemes, spam you, (I will include screenshots from my emails from yesterday) and can’t justify their price. You can definitely do better than that.
Their last blog post is from 2019, which shows how much they are interested in cyber-security.

The uninstaller is very badly designed and leaves “Scan with TotalAV” in explorer contextual menu after uninstall.

I have been receiving very interesting emails for quite some time. I do not normally click on links in SPAM emails and I highly recommend users not to do it too. However today, out of curiosity, I have decided to check that out.

This is an email seemingly from "Mcafee" (incorrectly formatted) that also includes references to Norton.
Upon clicking on the link, I am taken to this webpage:

Similar emails, also pointing to TotalAV:

Once again, I would like to remind users not to click on any links in messages flagged SPAM. Specially when the formatting of the email doesn't look like what the official brand will send you.

Damn McAfee's new UI is looking sick. Such an improvement from last year! 😄
