To all who are considering McAfee - don't bother.
I've had so much trouble with them you would not believe. I am now out of pocket for 12 months licence and have NO licence. They also refuse to act on refund requests etc.....

Do yourself a favour and use another AV co.

When Dr Solomons closed down, I tried Mcafee for a year - had so many problems trying to sort out licensing and getting downloads I gave up after 3 months and have been with Norton ever since. Thayt must have been at least 5 years ago - you can't teach an old dog new tricks.....

but tens of thousands haven't, and there's little justification for warning people off a major software supplier on the basis of one bad experience. We prefer to take a more balanced view, and although you're obviously somewhat irritated by your experience I can't say that we see floods of similar complaints - in fact we see very few threads regarding problems with McAfee .

I have to agree with Forum Editor sorry.
I am in my second year of using McAfee VirusScan as I upgraded a few months ago from VirusScan 7 to VirusScan 8.
I am glad to say that I have had NO major problems so far (touchwood!)

you can read a lot of positive lab testing and comparision.

I agree with Forum Editor and CurlyWhirly. I have been using McAfee VirusScan for several years without problems.
