Back-ups, etc.
« on: August 15, 2017, 09:08:49 PM »
Have McAfee Suite currently installed on laptop/tablet/phone, but it's slowing down everything and tech friends have advised me to switch to Avast.
Couple questions.
- Has anyone had any issues with it slowing down programs, such as Adobe CC, or your internet connection?
- Any issues with either Google Chrome or Firefox browsers loading normally?
- McAfee will backup my laptop, tablet and phone to cloud storage - does Avast offer anything like that?
- What would be the benefits of getting a paid (single user) version instead of the free version?

Apologies for so many questions - I've had nothing but issues with Norton, McAfee, and even AVG. I'm a little gunshy about trying anything new. The devil you know ...

Thanks!
