The antivirus debate is a hot one. Many people swear that the Windows Defender Security Center baked into Windows 10 is enough to keep a PC safe, while others go to great lengths to find the perfect antivirus that balances performance and security.
When buying a new laptop, many manufacturers will include a trial period for third-party antivirus software, including McAfee AntiVirus. Windows Central Forum Member Closingracer recently created a thread asking whether or not McAfee is indeed worth re-upping a subscription.
Closingracer mentions that a free year of McAfee is available on their PC but isn't sure if it's enough protection and wants to hear from those who have first-hand experience. There are already a bunch of replies (told you it was a hot topic), with some people saying Defender is enough while others swear a third-party option is required.
If you've used McAfee AntiVirus, head over to the forum and share your experience; just be prepared to defend your opinion.
