"Must skip this software"

January 31, 2014  |  By CraigM25

 |  Version: McAfee Internet Security 2014


Simple interface


Bloated software that isn't efficient or effective


When possible, skip McAfee and Symantec software. Both companies manufacture poor software that is difficult to remove and does a poor job of detecting viruses and malware.

Consider Microsoft Security Essentials, Avast, or TrendMicro

"Sluggish and Broken"

January 30, 2014  |  By RCOS_Development

 |  Version: McAfee Internet Security 2014


I can't fill in this section, because the software didn't run at all. However, I'll give a thumbs up for allowing for Shaw Communications Internet Customers a free subscription for McAfee Internet Security.


The software installed in 1.5 hours (fresh install of Windows XP with 4 GB of RAM). After it installed, it immediately crashed upon opening it for the first time. I restarted the computer, and the software crashed again.


I wouldn't recommend using Intel Security/McAfee Internet Security, as it has evolved into a bloated and slow piece of software. Especially if you are trying to use a low end computer, don't even think of putting this on it.
