McAfee Complaint - McAfee Antivirus
INDIANAPOLIS -- When I go to the website and get updates the sight hangs and the pages turn white right before it updates and sometimes stops responding.
Also sometimes when the antivirus is active it will just shut down and disable.
When you set the antivirus on auto update and leave the pc for a while you can come back and the antivirus is disables and the MacAfee is wanting you to reboot the pc because of the update was applied.
I don’t like the idea of antivirus updating and disabling protection before I get back to the pc.
I own 2 computers and they are totally different, one has an Amd Athlon xp 2400 with windows xp and the other one has the intel p4 2.8 ghz with 2 gigs of ram with windows xp pro.
I no longer will use MacAfee products on any of my computers because of these issues.
I did buy the brand new version from Wal-Mart and saw that I was going to do the same thing so I removed it and took it back to the store.
I am now sold on Zone Labs antivirus and the firewall they offer and will stay with them.
No website to log in to and the updates are 5 times faster and what I see the antivirus is faster than MacAfee on finding a virus, I downloaded a zip file with a virus in it and it was detected the second it downloaded and deleted it, I tried the same file with MacAfee and it found the infection only when I right clicked on it and scanned it, so what I saw is that the zone labs antivirus picked it up without even doing a manual scan.
McAfee would never respond to this issue and offered no help except had me remove the program multiple times and re install it, I think that is every software company’s behind the desk monkeys that they call a service techs will tell us to run us in circles for hrs till we just say forget it and delete it for good.
MacAfee and Norton after 2003 versions are crappy versions that lag your computer and just don’t match up to the new Zone Alarm Antivirus.
I dare MacAfee to respond to this post.
