rebate liar

Young L., Newegg
30 June 2014
  • Summary: sigh~~~~
  • Pros: I dont want to judge this software itself, please see cons
  • Cons: Tried many anti-virus/security/all-in-one software with rebate, this mcxfee is the first one giving me funny trouble about rebate. It states "my UPC is missing in the envelop" which I 200% sure I put it in, and one more, ridiculously told me my address "did not pass USPS address standards". I have been printing my address, not hand writing, for like 10 years for selling/returning/buying things. YOU ARE KIDDING ME, please give me a better excuse. I wont look at this co...

Pure Trash.

Daniel D., Newegg
8 June 2014
  • 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.

Disappointed

Taken, Office Depot
9 February 2014
  • Excerpt: I needed help in installing the software. I contacted McAfee Tech service and trusted them to help me. They deleted parts of my processor and I had to take my computer in for service. Office Depot fixed everything they could but couldn't fix everything McAfee did to my computer. As of this date McAfee will not take responsibility for the damage to my computer. Therefore I will never purchase a McAfee product again.

Avoid

Charles R., Newegg
7 January 2014
  • Summary: I am not a so called "computer professional" I maintain a fair amount of computers for people. When people bring me a computer with viruses or malware one of the most common components is McAfee. I am not impressed with this software.
  • Pros: FREE with rebate.
  • Cons: Almost as useless as nothing at all.

Huge impact to performance

Ming L., Newegg
25 December 2013
  • Summary: A web link that used to take 5 seconds to load now takes more than 2 minutes to load. The impact to PC speed performance is simply unbearable. The PC has become almost impossible to use because of the slow running speed. Finally I have removed McAee Total Protection to chose antivirus software from another software vendor.
  • Pros: Full protection, high detection rate
  • Cons: Huge impact to performance. Because of this software, the running speed of my computer is now less than 1/3 of the previous.

McAfee Total Protection 2014

Noreen, Woolworths
7 July 2014
  • Summary: No I wouldn't recommend it. It was difficult to install - it wouldn't install from the disc. Then after two days I got a message real time scanning is off and computer is at risk. When I reinstalled it the same message kept coming up. I wouldn't recommend it and I will have to probably go out and buy another brand of protection. All I got from it was hassle.
  • Pros: easy to install

Total Pain!!!!!!

Richard, Woolworths
9 June 2014
  • Summary: Last year we used Norton and had no problems, should have stayed with that. Thought I would try McAfee this year as it had come well recommended and it has slowed my PC down a great deal, I will not be buying one of their products again. We have Windows 8 at the mo and brand new Computer, so you would think it would be tidy!!!
  • Pros: Always On, Full 24hour Cover, All Round Protection, None
