Default McAfee QuickClean vs. Ccleaner

Are these two things about the same? Which one is better? I haven't used Mcafee quickclean b/c it costs $20 while ccleaner is free...

McAfee is just going to slow down your computer.

Avast antivirus is free, and it doesn't slow down your PC. That's why you don't use Norton.

Nope, but it's McAffee.

98% of their products use up memory.

100% of software uses up memory.

QuickClean is a software that frees up harddrive space, you use it once, and then forget about it until the next time you want to use it.

I'm sure that "having it installed" isn't going to "use up your memory" ... so until you figure out what you're talking about, just go away.
