Verified Purchase
I bought a 3-license version of this in 2011, when my subscription was almost up (30 days left), the application told me so and directed me to renew on the McAfee website. DO NOT DO THIS!!! Once there, I saw the renewal would be $50, when I asked their customer service, they told me that was actually for only 1 PC, the other two would be additional $30, so $80 to renew a product I bought initially with 1 year subscription for $20 on sale at a local store. While on the phone with them, I pulled up Amazon and found this product. The same thing I bought in 2011, but the 2012 version, 3-license included, 1 year subscription included, for much, much less. I asked McAfee if they price match and the woman on the other end told me in broken english that I should not trust any web site other than theirs to buy from. I told her Amazon is well known, she said the only way it would work is if I bought it from them. I hung up, bought this one, received it in about 3 days, went to install it and it just told me to type the new product key. Then it added a year to my original subscription and that was that for all 3 machines, saving about $60 over renewing. I highly reccommend doing this each year instead, much better deal.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I have a Dell Inspiron 1720 with Windows Vista SP2 installed. McAffee Antivirus Plus 2012 took 20 minutes to install. Even though I unchecked "send anonymous usage info" during installation, I still find my system slows down a lot with this AntiVirus software loaded.

I had to reboot twice after the installation because my system was at 100% CPU. I also was unable to get to my gmail account with the SiteAdvisor (for the web) loaded even though I put the website address in as a trusted site. Instead I decided to disable the add-ons for the browser.

After my 2nd reboot, I decided to wait about 6 minutes for my system to fully boot up and McAfee to load in the system tray before I surfed the web or used any program. Once I did that, the residual slowness has been minimal. However, having to wait this long to boot up so that the CPU doesn't go to 100% is annoying.

I always found that McAfee antivirus works and this 2012 version is no exception. In addition, this version also scans external USB drives. Overall, I feel it is an acceptable antivirus program but due to the slowness I am experiencing on my system, I have to rate this three stars. I will update my review if I experience any further problems or successes.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
The nice thing about McAfee is that it's easy to install and does a good job of protecting your computer from viruses.

The not-so-nice thing is that after one year, it starts harassing you with pop-up messages like "Your Security has Expired! Click here to purchase an update!", which is very much like the incessant pop-up messages that I wanted to avoid getting in the first place.

Is there some way to make it stop???

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
McAfee's 2012 has an Anti-bot Protection feature, which blocks stealthy botnet software by blocking attempts to connect your computer to web addresses of criminals. The purpose is to prevent computers from sending user's personal information to web-based crime networks.

Another new feature is real-time scanning of USB and other external removable drives to protect spreading viruses, Trojan horses and other malicious code.

Real-Time Safeguards determine the risk of suspicious actions or processes in efforts to protect users from cybercriminals.

Scans and software updates can be scheduled during downtime so disruptions are minimized. Another feature to speed up your system is QuickClean, which tunes-up the system by removing junk files, unused applications, and cached browser files.

Overall, I think it's a really good program. One downside is that the initial system scan takes a long time and the installation of the program is a bit of a bear.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Antivirus is an important component of any operating system and its criticalness continues to grow in importance as more and more individuals find ways to infect computers, deliver spam, and otherwise do harm to the computers of others. I have used many antivirus software products and one that I continue to return to is McAfee. This latest version, McAfee Antivirus 2012 for 3 Users, is as good as ever, and I feel very confident that it will protect my information from harm.

McAfee Antivirus 2012 allows for loading on up to three different pc's for a single price and this makes it very useful for those who have pc's scattered around the house and do not want to invest in a separate antivirus purchase for each. Loading is easy and I like that McAfee Antivirus 2012 operates in the background, keeping your computer safe and without slowing down your processes. If you load a CD or anything else, it automatically scans and lets you know the coast is clear and when you schedule a nightly scan, it will tell you later if the scan didn't complete. These protections give me a safe, secure feeling and I can go about my day using my pc without worry.

McAfee Antivirus 2012 is great for fighting internet battles against viruses, spyware, and the like. If I had to find one small fault, it would be with the limitation with the three installations. If you don't install on three computers, you cannot install the remaining ones and expect it to last a full year. The countdown begins with the first install. So, if I install one on May 1, another on June 1, and a third pc on July 1, all three will reach their expiration on May 1. This is a small annoyance, but it really doesn't matter too much for me because I tend to load the antivirus on all three pc's at once anyway.
