Ive been using McAfee Life safe for my pc's, phones, tablets etc.. but for some reason last month it started treating swath/twx as a threat. ive set both programs as safe. but still keeps deleting them. tech supports reply was that if they are being deleted then they are dangerous. LOL

I use WebRoot / MalwareBytes combo. No issues.

I only use window defender on my home computer, which is the same as using nothing...

At work we use ESET 5.x, but I will probably be switching to Kaspersky when it is time to renew, because ESET 6.x has too big of a resource footprint.

Excluded files/folders should be ignored by your a/v, so McAfee tech support is full of crap!

AVG.

Been using it since it started out free, early noughts. Costs ~ $35 now, not sure €=$ exchange rate. Excellent.

There is still a free version of AVG. A lot of my friends love it!
http://www.avg.com/us-en/free-antivirus-download

Just make sure you select the "Basic" free version, and not the "Free Trial" internet security, which expires in 30 days.

I don't recommend mcafee or norton, as they have both become bloatware.

Log into your ISP provider too. They often provide free "paid" versions of AV to customers.
