Matter of being too "dumbed down"
I use Trend Micro, and the main reason I do is because of the countless times that it has placed in first or only second to BitDefender. I was a little annoyed by BitDefender, and frankly the same thing happens all the time with all anti-virus programs with the constant warnings about programs YOU know are safe. Anyways, Trend Micro is also the perfect amount of "user-friendliness" to make it helpful and useful, but not obnoxious. I started out with Norton, but I quickly realized that this program that everyone seems to settle for does not detect small viruses that Trend Micro removed when I installed it. The most annoying part of all was how slow and "dumbed down" the interface was. It seemed like they tried to make the program so user-friendly and happy looking that I couldn't even restart my computer without the program jumping into setting up filters, scanning without my approval, and just being there when I didn't want to see it. I think that McAfee and Norton are suitable for the average user, not one who actually wants to be highly productive on their PC.
