"Reduces Functionality of Macs - Would not recommend"

May 06, 2015  |  By upstatenyer

 |  Version: McAfee Internet Security 3.1

Pros

Unfortunately, the cons outweigh the pros and I wouldn't recommend this product to anyone.

Cons

Basically reduces data transfer to a snails pace and makes networking a drag. To back up my computer with Time Machine, I have to essentially turn off the program. I can't scan to my computer from my HP printer with the software. McAfee has done another job of releasing a terrible product

Summary

Total waste of money. I would like a refund.

"Also can not uninstall"

March 30, 2010  |  By pjiricka

 |  Version: McAfee Security 1.0RC1

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Avoid this crap! It will slow down your computer to an intolerable level, and it can not be uninstalled. I did find the uninstaller (it is in the Applications folder), ran it (it completes successfully), but then this crapware creeps in again and continues to run! I have version 1.0.

"Will not down load in the United states"

March 21, 2010  |  By Drewg5

 |  Version: McAfee Security 1.0RC1

Pros

None beta that can not be tested in the United states due to export restrictions from an American company.

Cons

See above statement.. Not a clue how well it does or does not work.

Summary

Must be a very nice system.. As us Americans can not use it...

Updated on Mar 21, 2010

Got it to download.. Still has problems: Please uninstall McAfee Security as it has expired and, Install an updated version.

"It's well-designed, with minor setbacks."

March 17, 2010  |  By Nano8blazex

 |  Version: McAfee Security 1.0RC1

Pros

THe program doesn't intrude on every day tasks, nor make my system any slower. Overall it has a good user interface, but I can't determine malware-catching "effectiveness" since there doesn't seem to be any viruses on my system.

Cons

One thing I don't like about it is that it delays the loading of the menu bar upon login by one or two seconds. Other than that, it is a good product, just pretty useless.

Summary

It is overall well-designed in terms of usability and everything, but slows down my computer a bit on login. The menu bar takes a couple seconds longer than usual to load up. Also, it is a pretty useless piece of software, although it could become more useful in the future, depending on what happens. Right now there simply aren't very many viruses or malware for OS X... I've had this program ever since its beta release and it hasn't detected any threats yet. So basically, the program may or may not be worth the two seconds it uses up at login; I'm pretty neutral about it.

"If it ever lets you.."

February 09, 2010  |  By eltoten

 |  Version: McAfee Security 1.0RC1

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Just tried to download that beta. It is spiked with so many obstacles and sign-up procedures that I had to give up. Browser incompatibilities, link to the wrong package - it downloaded a .exe installer. Just not worth the effort..

Stay away unless you have nerves of steel and the patience of a saint!

"McAfee Security Works Fine"

May 26, 2009  |  By richardwboman

 |  Version: McAfee Security 1.0b1

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Trying a few scans. It runs fairly quick and smooth with little interference to regular operations.

It's nice to have something to try and see how well they integrate the product.

In time, there may be issues with viruses, due to the number of mac users growing. With the unix underpinnings, it is only a matter of time. Besides, if every Mac User is overly smug, someone will make sure to ruin our day.
