Not worth the hassle.

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.
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...
Summary: I tried to load this software and it would not work. I took it to a computer repair shop and they too could not get to load, but while doing so it also screwed up the computer. I had to take it back twice as it changed some of the files in the registry.
Summary: It would not install properly after downloading. I called tech support and spent about an hour with him and got to the point that he was going to turn me over to a lead tech because the problem could not be resolved.
Summary: Product installation and activation is to be done with product activation card. However in my case it would not work and I spent approximately 35 minutes on phone with McAfee to accomplish activation.
