Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
McAfee is so on top of it that it checks your computer for threats BEFORE it installs itself, even downloading the latest definitions. Then it cleans threats on what is an essentially unthreatened machine. And finishes without a report. If I have ever seen a real program behaving like the malware it fights, here it is. Showmanship, a marketing hook. Or, maybe it really catches stuff, in that case it's a nice feature.

And then the inevitable dire warning about having another security app installed, and promising nothing will work right if you leave it installed. True in a few rare cases, but as Spybot S&D once pointed out, they have tested their product against all the majors and there was no compatibility issues. So, another marketing ploy to eliminate the competition.

But all in all, at first glance 2012 seems relatively unchanged since the 2011 version. It strikes me as another unnecessary marketing ploy - and a confusing one- to issue a new name every year- and one that seems peculiar only to home users, enterprise software may release an updates dot-something update, but it's nothing like this. As if they are counting on buyers to think they have to have the whole new unit.

Having gotten that out of the way, there are a few new features from 2011, but if you have been using it to your satisfaction, renew for another year and don't worry about it.

As a final word, after going through what I perceived to be the registration process (code, connection, activation) it is now telling me I have 14 days to activate my subscription- and none of the hyperlinks take me anywhere to allow this. Even navigating directly to the "Activate Subscription" screen will not allow me to do it.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Day 1:

Popped the CD in the drive, I started the installation procedure. However, the installation failed with a generic "Installation incomplete" error with no code. I went online to download a trial version so I could then just input the code... but I got the same error here.

Day 2: I tried both things one more time... I thought to myself "I don't REALLY want to give McAfee an awful review... so lets try their customer support. First they suggest downloading and installing a virtual technician. I did this, but the technician said "Fool, you have no McAfee installation for me to work with!" (Not exactly, I'm being flippant...)

After that I had to install a couple pieces of communication software and then I was running with one of their technicians. In a few minutes and with my permission he remoted to my machine.

The gentlemen diagnosed the problem incorrectly--he stated I had old McAfee files left on my computer that needed to be removed. In my case, I freshly installed Windows 7 on my laptop about 3 weeks prior and was running Norton before then. (Which I uninstalled beforehand as a moderately savvy PC user.)

I figured however, "what's the harm? Maybe the "Installation incomplete" left files on my machine.

With my permission, we restarted my machine. I was a little surprised however as the normal boot screen was replaced with the text that flies by when booting into safe mode... and immediately on logon I was greeted with the same chat box I was using to talk to McAfee customer support. That's pretty nice. I work as a programmer in a fortune 500 company, and our tech support system IS NOT that nice.

He downloaded and ran a removal tool, we did another reboot cycle, and re-downloaded & installed the package.

I was a user of McAfee, and had a license on a computer that isn't used very often. When the subscription ran out, I did not renew it immediately since the pc doesn't access the internet and is usually off.
I was contacted by McAfee's Legal Affairs-License Compliance Services department stating "It has come to our attention your McAfee Technical Support agreement has expired within the last 30 days....Once expired, continued use of McAfee technical support will result in a breach of your license agreement and may require a comprehensive McAfee license entitlement review. Please contact me within 5 (five) business days of the date of this message to ensure no further escalation occurs."
It looks like threats are no longer just from viruses and malware, be ready for threats from McAfee's legal department also if you don't renew quickly enough. I'll NEVER use another McAfee product.

So I got a new PC and it came with a few weeks free of McAfee AntiVirus Plus at a discount price. I am a Norton guy on all my personal PCs. Most of my work environments in the past have been McAfee because it is cheaper. It was dog slow in the past, but I figured they would have got it right by now. WRONG. I was constantly turning off the active scan to speed up compiling and transferring files.

The product touted - This version of McAfee Internet Security was developed specifically to work with your Dell PC for maximum security, speed and seamless operation.

What a load of crap that turned out to be. After my third virus, the happili re-director being the last, I uninstalled McAfee, Bought and downloaded Norton. Virus gone and PC is running fast again. NEVER AGAIN WILL I GET SUCKERED INTO McAfee!!!
