This is a good deal, but I recommend Windows users to use the built in Windows Defender (MSE), even though it is not as good as this or other leading commercial security suites.

Here's why. Most people who come to me with virus infected computers have antivirus installed, but they have not updated the definitions, often because their subscriptions have expired. The worst is PCs that come with 30 day trial versions of popular antivirus programs. When another antivirus is installed, MSE is deactivated. So after the 30 days have passed, their computers are unprotected.

Whenever someone comes to me with a new PC, the first thing I do is remove the trial software. Windows then automatically activates MSE and updates the definitions. Since it is free and running in the background, they can just forget about it.

I am sure most people here are more careful about keeping their software licenses active, but for the average person, the basic protection of MSE is better than an expired or out of date commercial antivirus.

There are lots of reviews complaining about Defender, but they do not consider human behavior in the equation. If they did, Defender would be the top antivirus as it is the one that protects best against idiocy and laziness.

Windows defender isn't meant to be the only form of protection for your computer. I use AV and Malwarebytes. If ESET is on sale I go ESET, if not and Kapersky is I go Kapersky. If both aren't I use free version of Avast. I haven't been infected going on 17 years.

Anyway, question for OP.

Does the 1 year start after activating on the PC? So could I buy for 3 PC, use 1, wait a year, and use another for the same PC, and get another year? And keep this going until I use all 3 over 3 years?

The timer starts once you activate the first code. So it's one year max for up to 3 devices.

This is a fairly good deal. NOD32 is my favorite for several years now. I used to be a big Norton fan, but their stuff just kept getting more bloated and expensive.

If you only have 1 PC, search around on Newegg/Amazon/Ebay. You can find 1 device with 2 years of license for $20 or less. $20 is the usual sale price for the 3 device / 1 year package. 1 device / 1 year keys are usually around $10. Sale prices.

And I agree with what you said about definitions and preloaded software. When I build a computer I usually have a genuine copy of Windows going on the HDD as a clean install so it's dry. First thing I do after installing drivers is get some form of light AV on it along with Malwarebytes. I like the paid version of MWB because of the real-time protection. One of the best applications out there or even the best. Once that's done I run windows update and keep installing OS updates until there's no more. Once that's done I start loading whatever applications I normally install like Firefox, Open Office, Skype etc. Then the very last thing I'll do after I install everytbing is a quick defrag although it's probably not needed yet.

Unfortunately, 99% of the people can't be bothered to do that. And if I did it for them, they would do something to screw it up with a few months.

Oh I know. Used to live next to this family with 3 kids. The youngest was CONSTANTLY infecting the computer so bad that it didn't mean sense to do anything besides just reformat and start over. I must have done it 4 to 5 times within 6 months. Clicking things that he shouldn't have, downloading files that said they were games...you know the drill.

Don't you realize the people selling AV also create viruses?

I don't need another antivirus software for two years, so if I buy this, and wait two years, will the code work or will it become expired?
