Pros: It came free with purchase of some piece of hardware I bought
Cons: Everything. This is the absolute worst antivirus program on the market. I loads everything on the front end, so it makes your pc crawl. I constantly am working on pc's that have McAfee and have major virus issues. since it was free, at least I have a gift to give someone I really dislike. There a...
Summary: Does NOT need to come as a "free gift". Please send a "free gift" that we can actually use.
Pros: Great for novice user who have no idea of what a virus or malware is.
Cons: Complete rubbish, waste of money, and does nothing more than take up too much space. There is free software out there that works a lot better than this and takes up a fraction of the space and resources needed.

Cons: McAfee Internet Security 2015 - 3 PCs Model#: MIS15EBF3RAA Item#: N82E16832484090 Comes in a box but DOES NOT contain a CD/DVD. It is a BOXED Down Load Key. It took me 15 hours in Online Chat with McAfee Technical Support and $70 in data fees to install on three Laptops.
