Don't worry, I know all about the mess getting rid of McAfee. Much easier than it used to be. The worst was that "Go" addon or whatever it was. That was very fond of reinstalling the whole shebang after deletion LOL. Before McAfee finally released their removal tool.
Kaspersky was great to set up and use. I had it for several years. IIRC about 2-3 years after I ditched it because of bloat they got the message and cleaned it up. Everywhere was full of people complaining about how it slugged their machine. I was more wondering if it had re-bloated.
Norton did similar.
Kaspersky did have one nasty. The installation routine used to disable Windows Firewall for what seemed like ages before finishing installing and activating its own. I used to disconnect the computers' Ethernet cables while that bit took place.
I'll probably go for Kaspersky or Avira based on AV Comparatives latest results. 3-4 licences though, so Avira looks expensive unless they have a multi-licence option. If it does, it isn't obvious on their website.
The indispensable man or woman passes from the scene, and what happens next is more or less the same thing as was happening before.
