It needs 100MB to run effectively. How does McAfee need 100MB to run? Seriously. I’m not even running the firewall or other tools. This is the biggest resource hog/POS.
And let’s not even go there on why the OS needs a 3rd party AV package to keep it safe.
Well, at least I don’t have to use Mac hardware…I couldn’t keep my prior attempt at running a Mac from locking up on me at random times.
Update: I have actually switched to Mac now. I still was unhappy with the fact that my old laptop kept locking up but my new one has been run happily for a while now.
