    "Good at detecting, but way too intrusive."

    August 08, 2014

    Version: McAfee AntiVirus Plus 2014

    Pros

    Good at detecting. (and deleting without my permission.)

    Cons

    Simply took over my computer and did things without my permission. First it deleted some of my programs I knew were safe without my permission and it wouldn't even let me redownload them, then it went as far as deleting the same programs on my other computers connected to the network without my permission, and I finally had it when it disabled my internet connection without permission when I connected my new phone to the network. The only way I had to get my internet back was delet Mcafee.Good at detecting, but never asked for permission to do anything, just deleted, and way to intrusive. Practically took control of my computer without my consent. AVG is much better. Also good at detecting and even detects malicous stuff mid-download, but asks you if you want to remove it, or any other possible virus.

    Summary

    "Beware - Did not protect against ransomware - no refund"

    February 01, 2013   |   By ihatemcafee

    Version: McAfee AntiVirus Plus 2013

    Pros

    none - slowed my computer down

    Cons

    I was running McAfee virus protection on my computer and still got ransomware which cost over $300 to remove and back up my computer. McAfee does not offer any compensation. They also do not give refunds after 60 days. I am now using Kaspersky. Best buy recommends this and I have a maintenance contract with them so they have a stake in keeping viruses off my computer.

    Here is a link telling you how to remove this product if you have it. http://www.pchell.com/virus/uninstallmcafee.shtml

    Summary

    Don't buy

    "Complete worthless crap"

    August 21, 2012   |   By CassusVastus

    Version: McAfee AntiVirus Plus 2012

    Pros

    None whatsoever

    Cons

    Lags computer, causes windows explorer to freeze up. Internet explorers freezing up and lagging.

    Summary

    Everything was fine for the past two months until the recent update a few days ago. Since the version update my computer has been freezing up and lagging. I couldn't even open the windows explorer to view documents or pics without it freezing up. IE was freezing up. Mozilla took forever to open. Even Google chrome was laggy.

    I spent the last few days trying to figure out what was wrong with my computer. Finally I uninstalled Mcafee and my computer went back to normal. Installed Avast and everything is running smoothly.

    Worst thing is that I just purchased Mcafee only two months ago. Worthless crap. Thank you Mcafee for ripping me off. If I could give this software zero stars I would.
