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: If you are tempted to buy this product because of its mail-in rebate please dont. This is a endless process and you are better of getting a better product. The company has no sense of customer service for both product or processing mail -in rebate.
Summary: I bought the three PC license for Mcafee - installed great on XP and installation hassle on Win 7. Since the Win 7 install was on an existing install, I thought this was just an existing issue.
Pros: It looks nice
Cons: Would not allow me to activate the software. Horrible Tech support.
Cons: if you're an AT&T customer you can get this software for free, but it's not worth it even if its free. my entire family downloaded it and some systems got infected 2 weeks later some a month. my pc was the system that stayed clean because i use kaspersky internet security. in my opinion i think t...
