Reviews and Problems with McAfee Internet Security

Download did not work.
23 January 2013
Summary: I purchased this software. They sent it to another web site to download it 24 hours later, then when I tried to download it, it wouldn't download. It took me hours on the phone to try to get it resolved, and they said it would be 24 to 48 hours longer to fix the problem... If you need software right away, buy something else.
Summary: Switched from Norton and am very disappointed. Updates are way way too frequent and bogs down your PC while its updating. As for the scan, a) it starts without warning (couldn't see a way for it to warn you) and b) absolutely grinds your computer to a halt. Cant work while its scanning. I do have a 5 year old computer, but Norton didn't do this, so dont see why McAfee should.
Summary: Could not install this on my Windows XP. Tried several times over - each time I had to uninstall (with MacAfee removal software downloaded off site) and reinstall. Finally contacted tech support chat and he tried to install to no success. He told me that the software was no longer supported by MacAfee and would have to get another software pkg. Basically just threw the money away purchasing this. So ZERO is what this software is rated.
Summary: McAfee charged me without authorization on renewal, but luckily I got them to credit my card. I have been trying unsuccessfully to remove this program completely from my computer. Can anyone help me? 405-282-4056. If you call McAfee for removal help they put you on hold then cut you off. Their cust. reps do not speak English very well or they pretend that you said "I want to renew my account".
Summary: I am not impressed with either McAfee or Norton, they both are very commercial and seem to miss virus's and spyware. In fact they are close to useless. Gives one a very false sense of security. Try iolo, bit defender or spyware dr. They all seem to find lots of garbage that these big name virus detectors miss. In fact, McAfee is even worse than Norton.
Summary: I uploaded this "software" on my laptop, my wife's laptop, and my kid's desktop. They were all running fine, but figured to start the school year off safe. Soon after, my kids computer and my laptop were infected with maliciousware and my wife's computer was running very slow.
I called them. They stated I had a choice between three products that I could purchase to diagnose the problem.. What a shake down. This product is absolute crap.

Summary: I purchased McAfee Internet Security Suite to upgrade from McAfee VirusScan Plus 2007. I did a complete virus scan prior to installation. I followed the installation instructions to download from McAfee's site rather than load from the enclosed CD. Download went fine, but after re-boot nothing worked. No network connection, no printers installed, unable to do a Restore, unable to access any files in my personal directory, applications didn't work, etc.
Summary: What is supposed to protect your family from pop-ups and security issues really just leaves you vulnerable to scams and porn. Following the step by step instructions, we loaded up this program and within minutes started receiving pop-ups stating that this or that program was an associate of McAfee if you clicked "no" you weren't interested more and more popped up leaving you unable to use the computer.
