    "Good updates, free, horrible realtime protection"

    September 05, 2009   |   By wiredchicken

    Good virus protection,
    Fantastic that you do not have to purchase this
    Reliable in some ways
    Has other great little features like a virus enyclopedia, and virus maps, and many more things,


    Not quick enough to catch a virus
    Have to sign up for an aol account which isnt that bad, espcially when you have to pay $70 for something like nortan!
    Slows down computer
    Had to use malwarebytes countless times to get viruses and malware off!!!


    This is just not a quick of virus software to be able to catch a virus!!! But excellent virus protection software, better than nortan, and kaspersky. Avast, avg and antivir are all limited and really cannot provide the same protection as mcaffe, especially becauase they are not as big mcafee is. But if your need permanent virus protection software you should definitely get this because it is free and is good in some degrees!!! But try Avast or avg first and see how well they protect, then you should try this!!!!

    "Free, but uses same paid McAfee Scanning Engine"

    First thing is, it is free. It DOES NOT take up a lot of computer system resources if you choose custom install, and then NOT installing the firewall.


    Well the worst part of this is signing up for AOL email account, but hey, it's FREE. And firewall is laggy, don't install that.


    1. Register for the free AOL account.
    2. Go BACK to MAIN website, and log in.
    3.Then GO BACK TO WHERE YOU DOWNLOAD (if you hit back, refresh).
    4. Go through the download process again, it will recongnize that you are logged on, and it will no error this time.
    5. Agree, and the download.

    You can also install this on multiple computers by going to the same website, saying you want to download it, but log in this time, and it will give you a different serial key.
