Is McAfee Security any good?

Hey guys, I just bought my wife a new computer and it comes with a year of McAfee Security apparently for up to 3 devices. Is that any good? I know in the past McAfee and Norton have been seen as useless programs that just hog resources and don't do much good, but I'm wondering if things have changed. I'm usually in the habit of removing all that junk from computers, but if it's a good deal, then maybe I'll let the one year go by before removing it.
