    Default Any conflict with McAfee Anti-Virus

    I am considering purchasing the Home edition of SBSD. Are there any known conflicts using along with McAfee Anti-Virus, which is my primary anti-virus program on my PC? I've never experienced any issues using the free edition of SBSD along with McAfee and just want to make sure there are no known issues with the Home version with advanced features. Many thanks.

    Rule of thumb is one firewall and one anti virus program resident to avoid conflicts, loss of program efficiency and system lock up due to both software products attempting to access the same files at the same time.

    Having more than one resident can cause system performance problems and a serious system slowdown.

    Hope that helps.
