Better than any other Antivirus12/15/2007
McAfee is the best of all overall... Easy to install and configure. While running it does NOT bog-down the computer as other antiviruses, such Norton, which is known to slow down PCs an avarage of 25%. In summary... McAfee VirusScan Plus is easy to install, setup, configure and update.
Works great, I will only use Mcafee on my systems. Have it running on 2 PC & one laptop.
McAfee rebate not worth the effort9/25/2007
The product itself is fine, but I DO have a problem with the rebate process and the amount of paperwork that is involved. I will never purchase another McAfee product with a rebate. I am extremely unhappy with all of the hoops I was asked to jump in order to get the rebate. After sending in the information I received an email asking for something else,now I have to wait another 8 weeks plus to get it. Warning, allow yourself at least an hour to fill it out and make sure you make copies. I have filled out many rebates, BUT never any like this.
Becoming Less Thrilled with McAfee6/12/2007
I've used McAfee ViruScan in one incarnation or other for many years and I'm beginning to re-evaluate it. Its performance, as I see it, is adequate, but the reason I chose McAfee over Norton, for example, was that it was virtually invisible. It worked in the background and didn't particularly slow down or otherwise impede the system's performance. That no longer appears to be true. It's constantly throwing pop-ups at me, asking me for permission to let the computer do things I've told it to do, and generally gumming up my workflow. I expect it will smooth out after a few weeks, but after a few months it will be time for an upgrade and -- by the way -- another involved load of paperwork for a rebate on the next iteration. I'm not sure I've ever actually received one of McAfee's rebates; there's so much crap to jam into an envelope, some of which takes some real digging many months after you may have discarded it, that it's hardly worth it. McAfee appears to have evolved into the product I always objected to when evaluating its competitors. I think I'm going to go shopping for the next virus software I install.
I was using Norton and had been for years, but they put more and more STUFF to bother you when working and and less user control. So I decided to try McAfee and it seems much easier on the user...it came with 3-user package and was free after rebate. Buy.com is great to deal with also, so I picked them to buy it from.
It was Fast6/8/2007
I really like the service. It was really very fast.
Decent product, great features & ease of use.6/6/2007
This is a pretty decent product that McAfee has come out with. You get multiple products in one package. I am satisfied with my purchase.
No rebate proof of purchase6/5/2007
I have perhaps a strange complaint. Buy.com had a downloadable rebate form for this product. Among the things you have to send in is "the original proof of purchase located on the top inside flap of the box", yet the top inside flap is completely blank! Clearly the people who put together the rebates don't spend much time chatting with the people who design the packaging.
I like the way McAfee works with Vista better that Norton. Once installed it asked you only once if it's OK to run the software and after that it is seamless. Vista would asked everytime you start the computer if it's OK to run Norton. You need to have the install CD in the computer and then go on line to get the Vista software. The CD does not come with it but the download checks the CD license. I like the networking feature that ask you to OK any PC trying to link up with yours. So far, so good and you can't beat the price.
caused system crash5/30/2007
Anti-virus portion of the product caused repeated crashes when logging on to the internet with PeoplePc dial up. Tech support was unable to offer any useful help. On the other hand the refund process through McAfee was easy.
Uninstall required if you use ZoneAlarm3/21/2007
This product seems to work well, so far, but if you are a Zone Alarm user you must uninstall ZA before it will let you install this software. Once the install is complete you can reinstall ZA - not a major issue, but a little bit of a hassle.
Great firewall, great antivirus, great antispyware. The 3-user license is a deal if you need to install this on 2 or 3 computers. The SiteAdvisor is also very useful. You can also set up a secure network between 2 or more computers.
Works well, some minor irritants10/12/2006
Used Norton before on a Windows XP laptop (AMD Turion 64 chip). I've used Norton for years, but now find it very, very slow. Experimented with AVG/ewido (from grisoft.com) and with this product McAfee Plus. AVG/ewido is the fastest one out there; Norton probably the slowest. McAfee does a decent job though. <br> Some of the mail checking is, frankly, retarded. When using Norton, I was able to say "if a suspect email comes in, clean it or delete it; don't bother asking". There appears to be no way to make McAfee completely stop asking you when a particular type of email comes in - it forces my email program (Thunderbird) to abort and forces me to restart the download. Works the second time around, just a bit stupid if you ask me. <br> In terms of finding viruses, etc. Norton's products also now seem inferior compared to McAfee and AVG/Ewido.
I switched to Mcafee from Norton due to many problem (so glad I did). I have used the 2006 ver. for the past year. The 2007 is new and has more features. Buy this product you won't be disapointed......
It help so much with my pop up and it is so easy to use. Just download and it check my computer everytime I log into my computer. So far, I have no virus. I only have it for a few week.
