I ordered this product from Amazon because it was on sale and we needed to have some sort of Antivirus software on our computer. Although our computer was running great, I wanted it protected. I read one review which stated that the product was pretty good. Since then, I see there are more reviews online. I typically don't rate products, but felt the need to share with everyone my experience. After installing McAfee, it has been one problem after another. Mcafee identified a "virus" which actually was a false positive. Everytime I log on it says to remove it and restart, after restart, the same message appears. After contacting McAfee about the problem, I was told I could pay $89.99 to have them remove viruses from the computer. What a coincidence. . . Interesting how the only way to fix it is for me to pay them money!

On top of all of that, Mcafee identified 'explore.exe' as a malicious file and removed it. Well 'explore.exe' is necessary for a computer to work. So without it, I now have no desktop icons and no start menu.

Bottom line, I thought I was getting a deal, instead I got a broken computer and will have to spend even more money to backup the hard drive and do an entire system install back to factory settings. Thanks a lot Mcafee.

I purchased this Product because it was recommended by the Manufacturer of the PC and Internet Security Systems does not offer a consumer based version of their Proventia Desktop. Unfortunatly I had to rebuild my system twice. Both times their software would not allow me to re-activate it stating that I needed to buy another license. I had to log into the McAfee site and try to release it. There are tons of Renew, Add More, Upgrade, link but none for tech support or for dealing with this apparently common problem. Their customer support gave me their "Pre-Typed, Canned Responses." none of which helped at all. I still question the level of protection I had. I am going to try PC Security Shield 2011 as they can detect root kits. This Product is not only impudent, but spams you with McAfee advertisments and deals for you to buy more of their products.

I wasted my money, don't waste yours. Oh, and Zero Stars on the rating scale is not an option.

This is additional information learned since my initial review of this product.

McAfee Antivirus Plus 2011 seemingly does a good job of preventing infections, intrusions, etc. However, McAfee has apparently decided that the fact that you have purchased a license to use their software gives them a license to employ direct marketing for some of their other products through the use of pop-up messages even when you do not have a browser open. It is the same type of practice utilized by "shareware" and downloaded "trial" software. These pop-up ads are rather large. They have been as large as 3 x 5 inches on my 24 inch monitor. There seems to be no way to disable these annoyances. You may also receive, by the same method, notices to "renew" your current license. This supposedly can be resolved by clicking "Verify Subscription". It is not always 100% effective however.

If you don't mind the annoyances mentioned above McAfee is a good choice. Personally, I will be looking at Internet security software from other publishers.

I have had this program now for a month. It will not register at all and it can not be used at all without re-loading it every 14 days. I am not getting any support help from Mcafees in this matter I think this product is a pirate copy. Thats why it was so cheap. I wont buy another one from this seller again. I should have known better in the first place. This product do not work at all I need to go to a regular store and buy one I dont expect to see any money back. It was not that much to begin with as far as cost go.but if I were you I would not buy from this guys stock It could all be bad.

Turned off all the other security on my computer and this thing still does not update. It still does not find the internet link that all my other programs find. Was charged for this sucker when I had my HP laptop done ate Office Depot after a crash. Now I still problems, and this virus tool doesn't work. No thank you HP, Office Depot and McAfee.

Why would you pay hard-earned money for a sub-par product?
Mcafee and Norton BOTH suck. Go get AVAST! Antivirus, it's free, isn't a resource hog, and works fantastic.
I've been repairing and building PCs for years, it's the only one I recommend. Coupled with MALWAREBYTES, your PC will be near invulerable.

I would strongly recommend NOD32 by ESET over this joke of a security software. Many false positives and wants more money in order to remove these false positives from your system, many of which are necessary files in order for you system to run properly.

An 18-month McAfee subscription came with my Dell computer and even though the scanning is slow, I decided to re-up for a year. I should note that my computer was virus-free while this clunky software was active.

I tried to install of the CD to no avail. The instructions suggested that I check the McAfee website for help. I did, then downloaded the trial version as instructed but received the same installation error messages over and over. I gave up after a couple of hours of frustration.

The company's support documentation is terrible.

I didn't bother to return the product because I preferred to avoid the frustration of even thinking abou this dumb product.
