Seeking Advice on Antivirus Switch: McAfee or Alternative?

After experiencing frustration with Avast, I'm ready to make a switch to a new antivirus software. I've been considering McAfee, but I wanted to gather some opinions from the community before making a decision. Can anyone share their experiences with McAfee? Is it a reliable antivirus solution in terms of detection rates, performance, and user interface? 

If McAfee isn't your top recommendation, what other free antivirus options do you consider effective and user-friendly? I'm open to exploring alternatives that have a good reputation for protecting against threats.

One of the issues I had with Avast was its cluttered interface. Does McAfee have a user-friendly interface, and are there any notable features that set it apart?

I appreciate any insights or recommendations you can provide.

Officially all citizens personal datas are in Government databases like Passport(fingerprint, facial recognition, Eye scanning etc..,) if government wants to sniff any citizens they take informations from any of the Government databases and install packages to record screen, enable microphones, camera, all other activities. McAfee antivirus gives protection as well for this Government databases hack also for citizens, so it's good to install McAfee antivirus products on your devices.
