Any reason to upgrade over the free versions?

I like the tunepc and some other security features of AVG ultimate. I used to spend 3 hours accomplishing what tunePC does to speed up my computer. There are better offers than 10PCs for $25 (i have 6). How much security do you need? Do you backup regularly? Can you afford to wipe and reload everything on your computer without warning? What if someone uses your contact list to send links to everyone you know; even people you never want to talk to? Its up to you to mitigate your unique risks.

I have the current AVG license until the end of the year. Can I use this new code to tag the current subscription to extend it by one year?

I am looking to get one for my new laptop which has trial version of Mcafee. Can anyone suggest which is better? Mcafee is also costing 20-25$. Is this good when compared to M AV?. Sorry I have never used this so wanted to check with those who has used Mcafee and is using this?

Personally I wouldn't use either based on past experiences but people might say otherwise. McAfee was never able to detect a Trojan horse on my PC that norton 360 found in 1 scan. Then again this was back in the day when McAfee was owned by Intel and it was absolute garbage. Norton is always my go to but I know people either hate or love it. It scores very high in lab testing and is on par with Kaspersky which some people avoid due to various reasons. Sophos Home is great and they make commercial firewalls which are used by banks and schools for security. I've seen Sophos Endpoint in action prevent a virus download from executing versus iBoss from a malicious website. Bitdefender is also great and offers a ton of features. It also scores really well like norton in laboratory testing. You can get a subscription for relatively cheap on eBay

Avast sells your web data in the free version (not sure about the paid): https://www.google.com/amp/s/www....-antivirus
-but after this news I would go for avg or anything else.

Avast owns AVG, they sell your data in the free and paid versions. I still have a 2 year avast license, I'll never use the software again.

Not only does Avast own them, but they swapped out the engine. They are now basically the same product with a slightly different UI on top, so if you're going to buy one just buy the cheaper option.

Wouldn't touch either of these. Apparently they are basically the same thing now but their reputation is for becoming big, bloated, and a drag on the system.

Better options are Malwarebytes or bitdefender

No AV software that costs money is a good deal. Just use Microsoft Defender. It's effective, easy on system resources, and less buggy.

If you want to double check, run a scan with the free version of Malwarebytes every once in a while.

Malwarebytes is an addition to having antivirus software.

Defender is better than it used to be but hardly effective on its own
