Agree with that, both mcafee and AVG are bulky and not very effective despite massive HD activity doing their thing. Avast+spybot+malwarebytes suit me.

Re: mcafee internet security

agree too ... mcafee is something best uninstalled (OK never installed in 1st place) .... have a machine running the totally freebie Comodo Internet Security premium without any troubles for a while (latest 5.8.211697 version released today, 11th October) .... this along with malwarebytes  should be enough for most normal home users on windows machines.
I did try the PN offering from mcafee BUT it seemed to be a cut down basic version where many of the settings seemed to be hidden ... Comodo very different
