Performance

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.

Becoming Less Thrilled with McAfee

by maggin@earthlink.net on 6/12/2007

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. Read More

McAfee rebate not worth the effort

by jchill1956@msn.com on 9/25/2007

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. Read More
