There are many comparisons of various AV applications from various biased and unbiased sources on the NET. I think it is a fair conclusion from these that there is not much to choose between AVG and McAfee for antivirus protection, and that each has a few different user features; none of the features I have seen with McAfee would justify the cost compared to AVG free as far as basic AV protection goes.
I can say that I have used the free AVG for more than three years without my computer becomming infected, and that every time I have scanned my hard drive with various on-line scanners, none has found anything substantial that AVG has missed.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
