F-Secure versus McAfee

Well.. Broni is going to love this. Davzilla got me to thinking more seriously about F-Secure. I watched the video below then watched another on McAfee and was rather horrified by the results.

We currently have McAfee Int. Sec. Suite on our computers. Our ISP offers for free, the F-Secure Int. Security Suite (and it appears to be a good one). Below are two links to tests recently done. If you have time, check them out. It seems to me that installing F-Secure would be a better way to go but I'm not entirely convinced. What do you think?

My System
Wow, I like the youtube videos but one curious question: which software is that guy using to record all of that and make it into a Youtube video?

Not sure who he is but his videos are quite interesting.

Anyway... hold on to your hat. I spent all week reading and rereading reviews and watching video reviews and ended up buying the new Norton Internet Security 2010. I've had it for a few days now and it rocks. It has an option to automatically log me into sites very similar to FF's LastPass extension. It is very low on resources and scans blazingly quickly. This program is really worth looking at. Anyway... it came with three licenses so I put one on my wife's desktop, one on my desktop and one on our netbook. My wife's laptop will have to languish for another year with TrendMicro.
