Summary: i have used McAfee for years and this one has me stumped. It did not come with a disc, only a number. It tells me an internet address to go to for installation, but when I get there, they just want to sell me what I I already have and want to install.
Excerpt: I switched from Norton to McAfee because it was cheaper and now I know why. My computer has been incredibly slow since I started using this product. It seems like it's constantly scanning my computer in the background so the applications I need to use are running slow.
Summary: I was all excited to find this product on Amazon. When I tried to download the files from McAfee on my dad's PC, it said there was trouble with the download. So I tried it again and still got an error message.
Summary: I should have researched this product better. It was highly rated on some PC geek sites, however, it is not a CD install. The box only contains a card with a code on it to enter on the McAfee website to do a download install. It wouldn't install on my laptop.
Product unnaceptable (very poor and misrepresented)

Summary: Am unable to register and activate this item after over two weeks. Cannot get an answer over the chat line and have tried calling at least 10 times only to get a busy signal at both customer assistance and the tech service.
Summary: If I could give this zero stars, I would. I purchased this item in anticipation of my new PC being delivered. When I got my PC, the very first thing I did was instal this item. Not even 5 hours later I had a virus which caused about 20 ads to pop open whenever I opened a browser.
Summary: If you can live with it, you can get a good deal on the product. If not, well, AV software is plentiful and not that expensive.
Pros: It was basically free, but I suppose you get what you pay for.
Cons: Everytime this blasted thing tries to update itself, it nukes Windows. According to the event log: Faulting application name: Explorer.EXE, version: 6.1.7601.17567, time stamp: 0x4d672ee4 Faulting module name: McPvNs.dll_unloaded, version: 0.0.0.0, time stamp: 0x522de439 Exception code: 0xc000000...
