Mcafee Informative - Mcafee 2009
ROCKVILLE, MARYLAND -- My computer came with Mcafee already installed. First off, it disabled itself from time to time without any warning at all on several occasions, so you constantly have to be checking up on it. Second, it allowed more than one virus to slip by it's rather flimsy line of defense.
I decided to give it one last try with 2009, and I'm sorry I did. Virus definition stopped updating after 2 months of the 2009 version updating just fine. Apparently Mcafee was aware of the problem but as of that date, had no solution for it. The tech chat room person spoke from a script, and seemed unaware of the problem at all. And didn't really understand English except for a few phrases. Finally I uninstalled and said goodbye to Mcafee forever.
Avast, AVG, any of them are much better and more helpful than Mcafee and I've been very happy since I switched.
