The Worst Internet Security Program I Ever Used

Steven K., Newegg
26 December 2015
  • Summary: I would only use a complete Internet security solution, not just an antivirus only. I recommend going a step further and using Internet Security with a hardware firewall. You can buy hardware firewalls cheap.
  • Pros: Better than having nothing installed at all.
  • Cons: I used McAfee on just one computer, and I was not a fan. I found McAfee to be less effective than Norton Internet Security, and the McAfee interface is horrible. A friend insisted on having McAfee on his new PC. We installed it and spent the day using it. Nothing about the interface was logically...

Download Version

LARRY T., Newegg
29 November 2013
  • Summary: No one in customer service has replied to my issues. I will not be a future customer of Newegg.
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: I downloaded this product to 2 PC's as of this date. The first attempt failed, and when I try to download it again, I am prompted with a reply that I have already exceeded my limit of downloads. 1? this is a 3 PC purchase. And on the PC that I was able to download and intall, I have now been prom...

It works

Connor M., Newegg
23 October 2013
  • Summary: Worth the price, especially if it is free after a rebate (as it often is).
  • Pros: It gets the job done. A nice perk to McAfee is that the current year key will work with all future versions. I bought this to use with the 2014 version and saved some money in the process!
  • Cons: Uses a decent amount of resources

Buy something else

Oliver G., Newegg
20 October 2013
  • Summary: Installed on 2 machines, then removed from the same 2 machines. Hours of wasted effort troubleshooting BSOD.
  • Pros: It's cheap
  • Cons: It's rubbish. I wish I'd seen the reviews here before buying. Stopped the wireless card working on one machine and caused BSODs. Slowed down my other HTPC to unusable level.

Horrible product

Joshua Y., Newegg
6 August 2013
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: I got this for free after MIR and paid too much for it. Absolutely terrible product, will never use again. Uses so much of your system resources it's absurd. The safesearch feature is a joke; constant annoyance and impossible to turn it off. Worst of all, I got a virus while the software was runn...

Very satisfied

Shlome K., Newegg
6 June 2013
  • Summary: You can't go wrong with this...
  • Pros: McAfee is a brand you can trust to take your protection concerns seriously. And with the money back offers, it's basically available for free or nearly free. It's the best protection McAfee offers.
  • Cons: None

Very Dis-satisfied

Michael G., Newegg
10 April 2013
  • Summary: Checkout BITDEFENDER - better protection and lower price......!
  • Pros: None - haven't been able to use.......
  • Cons: Product takes approximately 30 minutes to load from CD/INTERNET and then CANNOT BE ACTIVATED. Response from McAfee is "automated" and tells you they are having problems with their activation process. Then NOTHING....! Contacting their so-called customer service is next to IMPOSSIBLE. After multip...
