"Not the same company they once were"

March 22, 2014  |  By Hersh1693

 |  Version: McAfee Total Protection 2014

Pros

I've seen no Pros so far.

Cons

McAfee once was my preferred anti virus program, no more. Recently my McAfee Total (not!!!) Protection software has let several trojans through and when I call for support I get little other than for them to tell me it must be my fault but for a nominal fee of $80+ their technical virus removal service can remove the virus their system was supposed to detect and stop.

Summary

McAfee Total Protection needs to be renamed McAfee Total Ripoff.

"Stay Away from this company and their products"

December 17, 2013  |  By TimThomas992000

 |  Version: McAfee Total Protection 2014

Pros

Nothing good to say

Cons

Their service is the absolute worst. The minute you contact them as part of your subscription, they try to force you into purchasing one of their expensive support packages even when you don't need it. And if you refuse, they become irate and disinterested in helping you. Stay away from this company and their products or you'll be disappointed!

Summary

Stay away from this company and their products!

"never seems to bother me unless its important"

February 28, 2013  |  By kevm1967

 |  Version: McAfee Total Protection 2013

Pros

doesn't interfere on every little thing you do, easy to install,

Cons

scan takes a while to complete, but at least you know its checking everything.

Summary

I've always preferred mcafee as it has minimum disruption and is very easy to use, can't understand people who say that it is stopping them from doing tasks, I found norton and avg to very disruptive and you seem to go round in circles when your trying to resolve any issues and end up uninstalling whole program, I would choose mcafee any day.

"terrible support"

May 15, 2012  |  By unimpressedwithmcafee

 |  Version: McAfee Total Protection 2012

Pros

comes with computer

Cons

slowed down my computer to like molasses in January. ZERO customer support - they rip you off

Summary

Once I installed it, it took ten minutes to boot my computer. I turned it off and used other product. Now I have better performance.

They billed my card, and sent me the email from do-not-reply address that looks normal. nowhere on the email does it indicate that it's a do not reply email and that no-one monitors it. When I tried to get a refund, i got the runaround from the customer service guy. when I asked to speak to his supervisor, they just cut me off.

Lousy product. Lousy service.

"As bad as the scammer hackers."

November 14, 2011  |  By ObediahT

 |  Version: McAfee Total Protection 2012

Pros

A year of sedrvice with no real issues.

Cons

until I needed them. They say that they protect against 99.9% of virus, but if one slips by...you are paying BIG for it.

Summary

I got hacked with a program that shuts down all of my programs including internet (Privacy Protection is the name of the evil company) then they have a program installed w/o my permission and all I need do is activate (for $59) and they will get rid of the virus (that they put on) I called McAfee to fix it. They said they would give me live one on one assistance for $89.99. Sure it was my choice, but not much other choice there. I paid, then I found out this extra one on one service was only available for 5 days!!! $89 for five days!!! Basically I paid McAfee $90 for an hours worth of phone assistance, to fix a problem they should have stopped in the first place.

"Why pay twice the retail price a month in advance?"

November 08, 2011  |  By background sleuth

 |  Version: McAfee Total Protection 2012

Pros

They have none!

Cons

It has gotten stale. I used McAfee and have switched to Iolo System Mechanic Pro. It's half the price and does far more.

Summary

McAfee sells their product for $39.95 to new users, but charges $89.95 for renewals. They have the nerve to bill you at least a month in advance after sending 50-60 reminder e-mails throughout the year. McAfee is too expensive, outdated, and misses many of the advantages of competitors.
