    "It did what it was supposed to do and very well"

    June 1, 2012  |   By desertjoe2001

    Pros

    I feel secure using it. Years ago it got rid of malware that was wrecking my computer and it found the problem and fixed it. At the time I had McAfee and that program did not alert me to any problem.

    Cons

    took over 3 hours to scan my computer

    Summary

    I have a paid subscription to another antivirus program but this one is probably equal to it and its free
